Premiered at London's Royal Albert Hall during the 2011 BBC Proms, Judith Bingham's epic organ work The Everlasting Crown is here given its first recording. Based on a fictitious crown made up from real and famous gem stones, it is a work of amazing depth and range. Bingham draws on the mythologies and infamous owners of some of the world’s most precious stones, with each movement representing a different stone.
Celebrated organist Stephen Farr, who premiered the work, makes his Resonus Classics debut with The Everlasting Crown performed on the recently restored and impressive Harrison & Harrison organ of St Albans Cathedral.
