On 24 November two publications were launched at St George’s both in a way marking the 50th anniversary of the current organ in the Chapel.
‘The Organs in Windsor Castle – their History and Development’ is a new book written by Roger Judd, and published by the Positif Press. Roger Judd was Assistant Organist at St George’s Chapel for many years until 2008.
‘L’Orgue Symphonique’ is Assistant Director of Music Richard Pinel’s debut solo recording for the Resonus Classics label. In line with the vision of Sydney Campbell (organist in 1965) of an English organ with a French accent, the CD showcases three significant works of the Symphonic French tradition – Vierne’s 2nd Symphonie, Roger-Ducasse’s Pastorale and Duruflé’s magnificent Suite Op. 5.
Both the book and the CD are available in the Chapel gift shop in the Dean’s Cloister or via this link
