Percy E. Fletcher (1879-1932) was born in Derby. He is best rememberd for his many theater works, but wrote a few wonderful organ works, the two most-famous being the "Festival Toccata" and the "Fountain Reverie."
This piece reminds me of a beautiful Victorian fountain in a British park or formal gardens. The fountain "throws" the water in a diamond-like spay that sparkles and dances in the sunlight.
You can SEE THAT in this piece!
It's a cool refresher on a hot day. :-)
It's got celestes, and lots of tremulants as well, so, it's GOT to be good!
It's a little fussy to do on Hereford, as you have to "turn it around," using the Swell as the Choir, and the Solo Cor Anglais for the non-existent Vox Humana.
My mother used to love this piece...
