Robert Quinney organ

Sir Edward Elgar (1857–1934) wrote very little solo music for the organ, despite the fact that he was for a short time a professional organist. Given this ambiguous nature of Elgar’s relationship with the organ, and with the church culture of his time, this programme looks beyond the works originally conceived for organ to music arranged from orchestral originals. Robert Quinney was Sub-Organist of Westminster Abbey between 2004 and 2013.


Reviews

Revel in Robert Quinney's superb, multifaceted, virile, eloquently expressive playing of Westminster Abbey's mighty Harrison & Harrison organ.”

- The Daily Telegraph

Thoughtfully programmed, compellingly played, Quinney's Elgar entices.

- BBC Music Magazine

I’ve worked here for over thirty years and have seen many of the major services - it’s strange to realise that you are in a small way part of history.
