William Russell (1777–1813): Complete Organ Voluntaries

Published in 1804 and 1812 respectively, William Russell’s two books of organ voluntaries date from a fascinating and neglected period in English music. For this premiere recording John Kitchen has carefully selected a restored 1829 instrument whose period qualities equip it perfectly to bring Russell’s music alive once more. The lavish booklet contains detailed information regarding Russell’s original performance instructions and the registrations adopted by Kitchen.
