Reviews

Steeped in the French tradition which helped train him, Tracey finds no shortage of idiomatic tone colours for a recital of Tournemire, Bonnet, Gigout, Saint-Saëns, Franck’s Grande Pièce symphonique and Widor’s early Op; 13 Symphonie. In the face of overwhelming odds, the recording can’t but make the instrument sound like a caged lion – and how it can roar!
Choir and Organ

This is a wonderfully wholesome meal of somewhat neglected organ music composed by five of the most important French mâitres. Ian Tracey – organist of Liverpool’s Anglican cathedral since 1980 – knows this instrument better than anyone else and manages to conjure up the most vivid and eclectic range of sounds from its 9765 pipes… The playing is absolutely first-rate and the playing magisterial and highly persuasive. Strongly recommended.
Gramophone

This programme hinges around two massive works, the Franck Grande pièce symphonique of the title and Widor’s Symphonie No. 4, and both organ and player are obviously well able to master the sheer weight of these pieces.
Choir & Organ

Ian Tracey has been extremely fortunate to have Chandos engineers secure his performances, for they have done so here in quite exemplary fashion. Indeed, this is one of the best recordings of a cathedral organ I have heard, capturing the fabulous sound of Tracey’s playing, whish is equally outstanding in itself…. More, please.
