This wonderful potboiler sounds terrific on the 1896 George Benson organ of St. Joseph’s Church, Glasthule, where I’ve been organist since 1996. In fact, this was the voluntary I played at the conclusion of my first mass as organist there on November 17th of that year. The arrangement is my own, though heavily based on an existing arrangement by W. T. Best which I heard on record as a child.
