Daniel Cook is the sub organist of Westminster Abbey and has recorded many CDs of complete cycles of British music for Priory.

Describing Volume 1 from Salisbury Cathedral (PRCD 1095), The American Record Guide said that Cook’s performances were “irreproachable, vivid and expressive” and went on to say that it is probable that Cook’s recordings would become a benchmark for this repertory.

From the great Willis of Salisbury, Cook’s second volume comes from its sister organ in Durham, another superb vehicle for this composer’s music which needs space and presence. It abounds here in plenty.

Reviewing Volume 1 (PRCD 1095) The American Record Guide said:

"Cook's performances are irreproachable from a technical point of view, but they also vividly communicate the expressive character of the music, whether dramatic and fiery or tender and lyrical. These are magnificent performances and dazzling sound. I can foresee Cook's recordings becoming the benchmark for this repertory." 

"Cook's playing has emotional  elegance...his playing is never less than intelligent and involved in  a well-recorded recital with detailed  notes by Jeremy Dibble." Choir and Organ ****

"Daniel Cook has established himself as a most persuasive champion of organ music by composers from these islands......excellent booklet notes from Jeremy Dibble. His playing sounds like a labour of love and in partnership with the huge palette of sounds available to him at Durham, the music comes vividly alive. Neil Collier's recording captures the instrument and acoustic splendidly. Warmly recommended."  Editor's Choice Organist's Review June 2015.

Daniel Cook's groundbreaking series will continue with Volume 3 from Salisbury Cathedral and  Volume 4  at Westminster Abbey.
