The Organ in the Church of the Holy Rude, Stirling

Edinburgh’s city organist John Kitchen visits Scotland’s Mither Kirk and the country’s largest organ. Never before heard on disc, the 1939 Rushworth & Dreaper represents the zenith of British organ-building. Kitchen harnesses this king of instruments in a varied recital, revelling in its sheer magnificence.

"On this stonking disc, wait till you hear Kitchen unleashed on Elgar’s Pomp and
Circumstance March No 1."

"Those who insist that the likes of Widor must be played on a Cavaillé-Col organ will be very pleasantly surprised to discover how idiomatic the Stirling instrument can be made to sound."
