Renowned organist Stephen Farr returns to the Resonus label with a major survey of the complete organ works of the twentieth-century British composer Kenneth Leighton (1929-1988). This is the first time Leighton’s complete solo organ works have been recorded together with the collaborative organ works, with appearances from John Butt, Chloë Hanslip and Nicky Spence in Martyrs for organ duet, These Are Thy Wonders for tenor and organ (a world premiere) and Fantasia on a Chorale (Es ist genug) for violin and organ. Recorded over three instruments, the monumental Rieger organ of St Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh, the city where Leighton spent most of his working life as a composer, is the centrepiece organ of the set, which also features the organs of Birmingham’s Symphony Hall and St Paul’s Church, Knightsbridge, London. Completing the set is the world premiere recording of Leighton’s only work for solo harpsichord – Improvisations (De Profundis).
