Live Wire - Organ Music by Iain Farrington


Iain Farrington, organ


Priory Records


This recording features organ works composed from 2003 to the present day. Here is music inspired by jazz, swing, big bands, gospel, blues, Stravinsky, and modern Classical. It comes from 'outside' the traditional Anglican church: this is music of parties, jazz clubs, gospel singers and animal caricatures.


Recorded at St John’s College Chapel, Cambridge
