As the title suggests this is a virtuoso organ recital from a brilliant young organist who is at present the assistant to James Lancelot at Durham Cathedral. This is her first commercial CD for Priory and the programme is centred around Oskar Lindberg’s superb Sonata. Massey’s playing is accomplished, exciting and the recital is a tour de force on one of Britain’s most versatile instruments. 

"Massey uses the organ to great effect in performing this mostly unfamiliar repertoire." Lark Reviews

"Quite simply this is a most auspicious debut disc. Massey has a most persuasive way for shaping phrases and the music flows beautifully. Neil Collier, no stranger to Durham has produced a recording of character and clarity. I am very pleased to recommend this CD whole-heartedly.       Editors Choice -   Roger Judd - Organists Review
