Robert Quinney organ

Sir Edward Elgar (1857–1934) wrote very little solo music for the organ, despite the fact that he was for a short time a professional organist. Given this ambiguous nature of Elgar’s relationship with the organ, and with the church culture of his time, this programme looks beyond the works originally conceived for organ to music arranged from orchestral originals. Robert Quinney was Sub-Organist of Westminster Abbey between 2004 and 2013.


"Revel in Robert Quinney's superb, multifaceted, virile, eloquently expressive playing of Westminster Abbey's mighty Harrison & Harrison organ."

- The Daily Telegraph

"Thoughtfully programmed, compellingly played, Quinney's Elgar entices."

- BBC Music Magazine

There really isn’t a more spectacular building to work on. It’s been one of the most gratifying and rewarding experiences of my life.
