John Furse's 'Moot Points' Recorded for Regent Records!

In John's words: 
THREE YEARS and more have passed since the first performance of my organ piece "Moot Points" – and not far short of four years since I composed the piece (January 2015). This won first prize in the competition associated with the restoration of the fine organ in Colchester's Moot Hall. 

It had another 'outing' earlier this month: at Blackburn Cathedral – again played by the performer who gave its première.

Last year Tom Bell informed me that he was to record it, for Regent Records, on the splendid 4-manual organ in the Chapel of the Royal Hospital School, Holbrook, Suffolk. Apart from its wonderful sounds, this possesses the largest (organ) grille front in the UK.

In mid-October, I made the drive down to Suffolk and met Tom and the owner of Regent, Gary Cole, for the recording. I now eagerly await an advanced copy of the CD and its release next Spring.
