RECORDING REVIEW:
Restored to Glory, Thomas Trotter at Birmingham Town Hall; Regent Records REGCD265
“Edwin Lemare is acknowledged as one of the greatest organ virtuosos of all time, but I wouldn’t put money on him in a straight bout with Trotter, unquestionably one of today’s greatest organists, who is here on unbeatable form.”
International Record Review, Jan 2008

HAMILTON, ONT “… Thomas Trotter completely deserves his high repute in the organ world. His technical prowess, although it is able to make light of all problems, is, nevertheless, the servant of a musical intelligence that is both mature and versatile.”
The American Organist

BIRMINGHAM (Birmingham Town Hall)  “A capacity audience heard Thomas Trotter play a challenging program … with impressive artistry and the technical mastery that places him firmly in the top echelon of international recitalists …”
