Part of the renovation of Birmingham’s Town Hall has been the restoration of its splendid 1834 organ by William Hill, widely regarded as one of the finest of English instruments. Thomas Trotter’s recital is a tour of the delights of English organ music, including early Renaissance music, the magnificently romantic Organ Sonata by Elgar and works from the present day.
