Sample Producer: Lavender Audio
Sample Set: Hereford Cathedral Willis Organ
Genre: Romantic
Description:
Living in England, I felt I ought to respond to the excellent article in The Barde by Wolfram Syré entitled, “The scandalous neglect of British and US-American concert hall organ-music is still going strong” by uploading music by some of the English composers he mentions.

In fact, I have already uploaded two pieces by composers mentioned in the article - my first upload to the ‘Concert Hall' was by Alfred Hollins - his Spring Song and I recently uploaded a Grand Choeur by William Faulkes.

A Song of Sunshine is another well crafted piece by Alfred Hollins and shows his wonderful gift of writing colourful and tuneful compositions. In ternary form, after introducing the two themes Hollins then works both melodies together.

Hollins was totally blind from birth but established a reputation as a virtuoso performer, first as a pianist (as a teenager played before Queen Victoria) and later as an organist. In this latter capacity he undertook several world recital tours. He was organist of Free St. George’s Church in Edinburgh.
