English Organ Music

English organ music is barely known within the borders of Germany, even though it has a multitude of impressive works to its name over the course of the 19th and 20th century. Edward Elgar, father of modern english art music, wrote with his G major Sonata an extensive piece that does not deny its origin connected to Brahms but still goes its very own way. The whole extend of Elgar's talent are shown by his merging of pieces as antithetic as "Imperial March" and the "Chanson the Matin". When connected to rarely played composers such as Percy Whitlock and Herbert Howells special pieces of organ art can be discouvered, which can hold exquisite experiences.
