ORGANISTS' REVIEW (May 1997)
"Recording and production are exemplary and both discs can be highly recommended."
THE DIAPASON (October 1998)

"...Together the two CDs provide a good survey of four interesting organs, while the playing illustrates the high standard of the music establishment at Eton. An enjoyable and instructive pair"
BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE
"...Much of the music here is articulated with great flair and eloquence, especially the two Elizabethan items on the Snetzler chamber organ, played by Robert Quinney and Paul Plummer. There is also a dazzling display of virtuoso fingerwork on the Hill organ, especially by Christopher Hughes in Patrick Gowers’ Toccata.
