Nottingham boasts a fine collection of organs of richly diverse character. This DVD showcases five of the city's best instruments, including the magnificent J. J. Binns organ of the Albert Hall and the stunning Marcussen organ in the church of St. Mary. David Butterworth performas a compelling programme of music that ranges from modern Danish pieces by Madsen, Eriksen, and Hartmann that work perfectly on the Marcussen organ, to major works by Parry, Ireland and Hakim for the Binns. Delicate pieces by Gibbons, Tomkins and Stanley allow the historic instrument at Wollaton Hall to sound at its best. Bonus tracks by Bach, Buxtehude, and Walther show off an early organ by von Beckerath in the German Lutheran Church and a 'model' organ by Grant, Degens, and Bradbeer. These fine performances are featured on both CD and DVD in full 5.1 surround sound. The filmed performances include a 15-minute film exploring the history of the five organs.
