The English Organ definitively explores the full history of the English organ through longer than 12 hours of video documentary and audio material in a set of 4 video DVDs and 3 CDs that, like Fugue State Film's much beloved and awarded The Genius of Cavaillé-Coll, features playing, interviews and organ visits. The lavish boxed set includes video visits to more than 30 organs: early surviving examples of English organs to a few recent ones. Now that this set is in stock, the price will rise in a few days. Shipping within the USA included.

The  centerpiece of this grand production is a three-part documentary video tracing the history of the English organ and its music played in England and in parts of the British Empire during the period ca. 1600 to the present, showing the vibrant culture of the organ and its music. The set includes a booklet with photos and specifications of all the instruments. Many performances are by the concert organist Daniel Moult who received great reviews for his contributions to the earlier, single DVD, The Elusive English Organ, now out of print.

The DVDs in the new set include video of full performances of three hours of music from Purcell to the present day, among them such composers as Handel, Stanley, Wesley, Smart, Stanford, Brahms, Elgar, Bridge, Howells, Parry, Vaughan-Williams, Whitlock, Thalben-Ball, Britton, Hollins, Britten, Brockless, Gowers, MacMillan, Leighton etc.  Some choral music from the Anglican tradition is included.
