Paul Patterson’s CD release, Complete Works for Organ , has received a 5* review in the November/December issue of Choir & Organ Magazine, the the leading independent magazine for all professionals and amateurs in the choral and organ worlds.
Please see below for the review:
“For sheer drama, volume four reaches new heights in this innovative series. It pairs Paul Patterson’s expressionistic language with the vitality of the 1962 Harrison & Harrison organ in Coventry’s cavernous cathedral. From the opening bars of Tsunami, this is music and playing that grabs us by the ears and whisks us on a journey of vivid intensity. The aleatoric nature and graphic score of Games (1977) involves the player in constant invention; here, two different interpretations are presented. In this piece, Bonaventure explores outlandish stop combinations which expand the scope of the music. His playing is virtuosic, the music fascinating.”
