Apollo
James Whitbourn's Apollo tells the story of the first manned flight to the Moon (the year before the first lunar landing). A wealth of imaginative textures depicts such dramatic events as countdown, ignition, and the first sight of earthrise, leading to a fantasia on an ancient Greek melody, and a final triumphant Paean.
Prices from: £8.75
Crown Imperial
This popular march was first performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the coronation of King George VI in 1937 and, more recently, at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. This arrangement incorporates the cuts Walton made in 1963; the highly communicative music surges with irrepressible energy and mounts to a heroic climax.
Prices from: £10.50
Elegy and Festive Bells
Elegy, with its warmly expressive tenor-range melodies, is highly suitable for use at funerals, while the cascading joy of Festive Bells makes it perfect as a wedding recessional. Both pieces have that warm sense of Englishness that makes them very accessible to the first-time listener.
Prices from: £7.95
Embertides: Suite for Organ
This four-movement suite for organ is based on the divisions of the church year, and references plainsong and other hymns relevant to the seasons. Drawing on a wide range of colours and textures, the composer creates an evocative and varied suite of pieces, perfectly suited for both recital and church performance.
Prices from: £12.25
Evocation of Wells Cathedral
Bednall's creation, rooted in the tradition of French organ improvisation, tenderly evokes the mysterious beauty of Wells Cathedral's remarkable 'Jesse Window'. The radiant music ebbs and flows calmly, moving through freely expressive passages of rich harmony, before closing with gentle murmurs at the top of the instrument.
Prices from: £6.95

Prices from: £16.50

Prices from: £6.75
O Antiphon Sequence
O Antiphon Sequence was conceived as a recital piece, although each of its individual movements would also work in a liturgical context. Each movement is a response to an extract of liturgical text from the 'O Antiphons' used at Vespers during the last seven days of Advent in Western Christian traditions.
Prices from: £10.25
Orb and Sceptre
This famous march was commissioned for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. The stirring music, skilfully conveyed in this arrangement, offers everything from sweeping melodies to playful syncopations and magnificent fanfares. This piece has often been paired with Walton's Crown Imperial.

Paean
The tragically early death of Kenneth Leighton robbed cathedral music of one of its most individual voices. This piece is a compositional showcase: textural inventiveness, motivic cunning, and bristling Lydian-inflected harmonies combine to create a highly effective work, suitable for recital use or as a voluntary.
Prices from: £7.75
Plymouth Suite
A very approachable work, probably the composer's most famous and popular organ piece.
Prices from: £13.50
Processional
Processional bustles with cheerful positivity throughout, its rondo-like structure clarified by the memorability of its abundant melodies. The harmony is modal to begin with, but moves from this deliberately archaic sound to more piquant and modern colours, building to a triumphant conclusion.
Prices from: £7.75
Rhapsody
This powerful piece, dating from 2010, shows off the full resources of any organ it is played on. Its driving rhythms and exhilarating, often bitonal, harmonies recall such French organist-composers as Langlais and Messiaen.
Prices from: £8.25
Suite 'Laudate Dominum'
Each of the six movements of this fine suite is an exquisite character sketch based on a Psalm text. The movements are easily diverse enough to make the entire suite a very satisfying, and indeed virtuosic, recital piece.
Prices from: £8.75
Sun Dance
Sun Dance is a slightly modified version of the fifth movement from the composer's Organ Dances. The music is for the most part celebratory in character, its spiky rhythms driven along by the pervasive alternation of 3/8 and 4/4 metrical groupings, although the composer also has fun with 7/8 and 5/8 patterns.
Prices from: £8.25
The New Oxford Organ Method
A single piece of repertoire is the primary focus for each chapter, with preparatory exercises providing the necessary technical work building towards the piece. Each lesson covers practice methods, registration, fingering and pedalling, and interpretation.
Prices from: £29.95
Three Liturgical Improvisations
This set of three organ improvisations, each based on a liturgical text, is written in a quintessentially English style: largely diatonic but not unremittingly consonant, flowingly melodic, texturally rich, and steered away from predictability by constantly varying bar- and phrase-lengths.
Prices from: £9.95
Toccata in Seven
With exuberantly rhythmic textures skilfully wrought within a septuple metre, John Rutter's Toccata in Seven offers a lively new take on the toccata. The music moves from a jubilant opening to a more sustained central section before the initial sprightliness returns in a final flourish.
Prices from: £7.95
Variations on an Easter theme
An organ duet - quite a rare thing - based on the theme 'O Filii et Filiae', a traditional 15th-century melody. The faster variations use a toccata-like figuration, and the more peaceful ones make use of 'bluesy' harmonies.
Prices from: £16.95
Walton's Paean
Commissioned for the 40th birthday of the organist Paul Walton, Walton's Paean is a work of great verve, with compelling rhythms, exciting harmonies, and catchy melodies propelling the celebratory music forward. Through the boisterous excitement, legato passages emerge as the piece hurtles towards the resounding finale.
