Following a teaching career as Director of Music at Radley College, Oxfordshire and Glenalmond College, Perthshire, Robert Gower is currently Organist of St Barnabas Cathedral, Nottingham. His commitment to English twentieth-century composition is reflected through his founding and leadership of the Percy Whitlock Trust until its copyright income ceased, and in his Chairmanship of the Gerald Finzi Charitable Trust. In addition to editorship of OUP's Finzi and Walton organ albums, he is the compiler of Oxford organ collections of both seasonal and teaching repertoire.
This collection is a superb way in which to give a developing student plenty of fine material to work through without having to buy either many different books or extremely expensive tutors ... perhaps one should bury the musicological hatchet and say bravo! for the immense range of music presented, all in a form which the student can handle.
