Paul Fisher (b. 1943)



Paul Fisher's music is a unique blend of deep spirituality, wit, humour and passion. If you have not discovered him yet, his Eireann Notes (published by animus) offer a gentle introduction to his style.  " . . . disarmingly sophisticated transformations of seven Irish folk melodies . . . I especially like the ornate decoration of the sixth piece, 'Errigal Braes'.  Thrilling."  (Philip Clark in Choir and Organ)



This superb new CD (PRCD 892) includes the Eireann Notes which made such a deep impression when they were played by Kevin Bowyer at the IAO Congress in Glasgow this summer.  These seven short pieces based on Irish folk melodies are available from animus at £6.50.  Also included on this CD are several other substantial works by Paul Fisher:  The Fire and the Rose,  Name Play (Variations for organ and clarinet),  Two Grumpy Pieces and the large-scale  Tintern Sonata.  This CD is a  'must-have' for anyone interested in contemporary organ music.

Paul's The Colours of Spirit, based on the plainsong Veni Creator Spiritus, is also available from animus at £4.00.

The CD may be obtained from your usual supplier or online from Priory Records. (www.priory.org.uk)
