Walton Orb and Sceptre

Superb recitalist Christian Wilson, organist at The Tower of London, presents this sparkling programme of music of the British Isles for St George’s Day on the fine Snetzler organ of the Minster.  Music of monarchs ranging from the music of Henry VIII to William Walton’s Orb and Sceptre, composed for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, is set alongside works of Byrd, Purcell and Bairstow. Reaching across the border to Scotland, we hear Mendelssohn’s popular Hebrides Overture, arranged for the King of Instruments. New Paths continues its festival tradition of commissioning new music: Alasdair Nicolson is one of Scotland’s foremost composers and this is the world premiere of his first piece of organ music, co-commissioned with Sound Scotland.
