William Faulkes - An Edwardian concert with England's organ composer. © 2014 Delphian Records Ltd

Although William Faulkes is, maybe, England's greatest composer in the solo organ genre, he is still one of the least appreciated, so this CD has a very important role to play in re-establishing the fame of someone who was held in high regard during his lifetime (1863-1933). Indeed, by the time of his demise, he had amassed and published over five hundred compositions for the organ and many more were left in manuscript.

So why all this neglect?..
