Following two CDs of the choral music of James Cook and the first CD of his organ music (to be followed by a double CD of organ symphonies in November 2006), this recital features music for organ and harp, two with solo voice and one with choir.

captivating accounts of two short sun-drenched songs… what is apparent is a sincerity of expression and a real desire to communicate… will prove both comforting and enjoyable.
