Following his landmark recording of Giles Swayne's Stations of the Cross, organist Simon Niemiński returns with this engaging collection of organ works by Charles Villiers Stanford, the second volume dedicated to the Irish composer. Niemiński performs on the unspoilt 1913 Brindley and Foster organ of Freemasons' Hall in the heart of Edinburgh. Given a full restoration in 2009, this organ provides an ideal vehicle for authentic performances of this music. Included is Stanford's Organ Sonata No. 1, the triumphant Marcia Eroica and two world premieres: The Angelus and the beautifully simple early work Prelude on the Ancient Melody 'Jesu dulcis memoriae'.
