-------------------------------

Peter Gould at the organ of Derby Cathedral,
heard by TERENCE BENNETT

 

A larger than usual audience gathered for the first of the recitals this year to be given by a member of the 'home team', Master of the Cathedral Music, Canon Peter Gould, who opened his programme [8 August 2012] with a contrasting set of Baroque pieces.
