The expertise of the arranger, celebrated jazz pianist and composer Nikki Iles, guarantees an authentic jazz sound, and a range of styles from Nat King Cole to John Coltrane.

A PURCELL ORGAN ALBUM
Purcell; Arr. Setchell
This is a marvellous collection of pieces by Henry Purcell newly arranged for the Organ by concert organist Martin Setchell. Purcell’s music is perfectly suited to the Organ, and a number of his pieces have long been popular with players. This volume brings together a range of well-known pieces - trumpet tunes, the Rondeau from Abdelazer, Dido’s Lament, and movements from The Fairy Queen - and combines these with a wonderful selection of lesser- known pieces from across Purcell’s work. The result is a set of pieces with wise and varied church and concert use, perfectly accessible to intermediate players, and making a valuable addition to any organist’s repertoire.
