It Takes Two!
  (MP3 Album)

Thomas Heywood

The Two Organs of Kyllburg Old Abbey

The Two Organs, one baroque - one romantic, at either end of the beautiful and resonant 13th-century Old Abbey, feature on this glorious recording. 

The program continues the 'double' theme. The Two Organs are heard in pairs of transcriptions, and pairs of original works, by some of the leading lights of the golden age of the Concert Organ.

The instruments. The acoustic. The repertoire. The performer.  

Program highlights include:

Mussorgsky’s The Great Gate of Kiev from Pictures at an Exhibition
Rachmaninoff’s Prelude in C-sharp minor
Purcell’s Chaconne from The Fairy Queen
Chopin’s ‘Raindrop’ Prelude in D-flat major

And much more!
