Afrika Hymnus-Cover

 Alec Rowley Organ Works

New release • Rediscover an English master

This two-CD set is the most extensive recording project ever devoted solely to the music of Alec Rowley (1892-1958). It includes a selection of works that are sure to surprise even those familiar with his music, played on the organ of Albion Church, Ashton-u-Lyne, a four-manual instrument by T. C. Lewis of 1895 which remains tonally unchanged. With stunning photos of the organ, the twenty-page booklet includes details on the instrument and notes by the performer on the composer and the music.

Herman Jordaan is a sensitive interpreter and well able to handle the music's requirements in terms of registration and use of the instrument. I am now inspired to go back to Rowley … Highly recommended.

Afrika Hymnus

The complete Afrika Hymnus cycle by Stefans Grové

The first complete recording of the tripartite Afrika Hymnus by the distinguished South African composer Stefans Grové (1922-2014). With extensive notes by the performer, a student of Grové.

Herman Jordaan makes vivid and persuasive use of St Albans Cathedral’s Harrison & Harrison organ in a valuable addition to the catalogue.

Choir & Organ

Herman Jordaan … delivers the music with lucidity, sensitivity, and commitment; and the St Albans organ has the clarity of speech and variety of timbre that it demands. A sometimes challenging but welcome discovery.
