Tim Roberts plays Blow at St Botolph Aldgate

I have been listening to Joseph Payne playing John Blow.  His playing, it would be fair to say, occasionally catches fire, but is mostly worthy.  So I have gone back to one of my favourite recordings, made by that wonderful keyboard player Timothy Roberts, of music by John Blow and his pupils and successors.  The recording also has the great advantages of providing some context to the organ music, with congregational and solo psalms (with Julia Gooding, Clara Sanabras and Richard Savage), as well as the oldest surviving English church organ, which happens to be a persuasive and beguiling musical instrument.  The recording should be available from the recording company  http://www.sfzmusic.co.uk/sfzartists-timot.html
