The Organs and Organists of Chichester Cathedral
Nicholas M. Plumley, M. Gillingham, John Lees
Phillimore, 1988 - History - 56 pages
The book details the history of three organs, and provides a complete account of the organists, warts and all. Chichester has had its quota of eccentrics, but, equally, its record of distinguished musicians is evident. No matter how good the instrument, its sensitive and liturgical use depends on the organistís understanding of the role of the music within worship.
