If the organ is the king of instruments, Dame Gillian Weir is its undisputed queen. This album provides a selection of the critically-acclaimed recordings she made in the 1970s for Decca, all of which have now been issued on Eloquence.

‘Weir’s sparkling registration tickles the ear’ [Clerambault]; ‘Gillian Weir has the full measure of this music … She dazzles the ear not only with her vigour and virtuosity but also with some quite scrumptious registration … The recording is marvellous, a demonstration of clarity and sonority admirably combined’ [Bruhns] Penguin Guide to Compact Discs

‘There is an aristocratic poise and restraint which illuminate Weir’s readings of Clerambault’s two Suites’ BBC Music Magazine

‘Remarkable for its sheer sense of drama’ MusicWeb
