As featured by Nigel Ogden on Radio 2's "The Organist Entertains".
Penny Weedon originally trained as a classical pipe organist, and gained her Associateship of the Royal College of Organists in 1984. Since then, she has become known for (and gained her other qualifications with) her digital orchestral performances. Here she returns to her roots, revisiting the style of music which is still very dear to her, played on a variety of digital instruments, all in her highly individual arrangements. She composed Millennium Toccata for performance during 2000, and it has received performances from a number of recital organists since that year. The Wilcroft Fanfare, another of her compositions, was written for her parents, to celebrate a milestone wedding anniversary. Again, it has proved a popular choice in recitals and as a voluntary.
