Rheinberger was a prolific composer. His religious works include twelve Masses (one for double chorus, three for four voices a cappella, three for women's voices and organ, two for men's voices and one with orchestra), a Requiem as well as many chamber works and of course his prolific output of organ music. Today Rheinberger is remembered above all for his elaborate and challenging organ compositions; these include two concertos and 20 Sonatas, recorded here.

These Sonatas are popular works and there are many complete recordings of them on European organs but we believe this is the first complete cycle on an English instrument since the pioneering ones that appeared on the Vista label in the 1970s played on cathedral organs. Here we feature the fine  Harrison and Harrison organ of the Temple Church in London played by the master of the music Roger Sayer.

 

"This is one of those greatly significant issues - the result is so highly achieved. The Temple Church organ is ideal for this project and the recording quality enables the myriad textures to be heard in great detail. The presentation and documentation are equally admirable. Very strongly recommended."  Robert Matthew-Walker - The Organ

"This opportunity to hear these performances has been a revelation of a rewardingly persuasive character. Production quality is evident allowing a full appreciation of the music, the panache of the performer and the riches of the instrument. Copious and helpful notes are provided. As ever Priory has maintained their excellent record.  David Dewar - Organists Review
