Hear the opening of Francis Routh's "A Sacred Tetralogy" for organ
ON ENTERING KING'S COLLEGE CHAPEL, CAMBRIDGE
in a definitive premiere recording by Christopher Bowers-Broadbent

Listen to the music which introduces the series, available from Redcliffe Recordings:
The Manger Throne (i) Op.3 Francis Routh RR 012 Lento espressivo 10'44" streaming sample

Beginning with silence, subsonic pedal notes lead progressively into a continuous arch of music, building to a resonating climax for the full range of the organ tones, which dissolve again into silence.

Francis Routh
24 Preludes for piano , Op.77

Played by Charles Matthews

Listen to the music here first by freely downloading a sound - sample of four preludes:

1 Prelude VI Vivace 1.12 streaming sample
2 Prelude VII Sostenuto 3.50 streaming sample
3 Prelude VIII Allegro moderato 1.41 streaming sample
4 Prelude X Con moto 4.03 streaming sample

These preludes use today’s scale of extended tonality in the same way that Bach used the diatonic scale in his 48 Preludes and Fugues (The Well-Tempered Clavier). Many 19th / 20th century composers have added to the classical tradition of piano music by writing 24 Preludes, most notably Chopin, Debussy and Shostakovich.
