Martin Setchell plays the Rieger organ in the Christchurch Town Hall.

BONBONS FOR ORGAN
MARTIN SETCHELL

Organists' Review (UK)
....the experienced Martin Setchell ...makes what looks at first
glance to be something of a mish-mash into a balanced and richly
varied programme, where the more sickly bon-bons (and we all know what
happens if we consume too many of them in one sitting) are
interspersed with some more savoury morsels. He shows us how this new Rieger
sounds altogether warmer than many of their organs, less "tight" in
the reeds, more relaxed in the flutes and broader in the principal
choruses. His own arrangements and compositions are worthy of a Lemare
and his fingerwork (listen to that ever-busy bumble-bee) as neat and
fleet as Bach's feet are supposed to have been. And that's saying
something. Bon-bons? C'est vraiment bon. Yum-yum!"
