Improvisations On The Pipe Organs Of Europe

Grand, eerie pipe organ theatrics and a contemporary Folkways triumph from BLAKE HARGREAVES as he travels the continent, sculpting a VERY convincing LP / travelogue in the name of jesus!

Don’t be mislead by the “improvisations” part - whilst these pieces all feel impulsive and unpredictable, they all still feel very much like SONGS, or more accurately - Mr. Hargreaves can seemingly play the organ rather proficiently and has not gone round Europe on some franticly noodling gap year, as one may have feared.

On par excellence with Aine O’Dwyer’s “Music For Church Cleaners” volumes, the shapeshifting gothic fantasia that you get with the varying reverberance of each Church offers a different perspective on the unsettling moods and slow motion abandonment of these ancient structures.

Great record!
