Description: Unique in having played in Westminster Abbey at the coronation of three English kings, Alcock was renowned as one of the finest organists of his day (one of the ABCs, with Thalben-Ball and G.D. Cunningham) and he spent 30 years at the organ used for this recital of four big works and many of the smaller sort every English organist wrote for particular occasions. With 20 pages of documentation of Alcock the man, Alcock the performer, the music and the organ. Daniel Cook (organ of Salisbury Cathedral).
