NEWS My CD of Organ Concertos, recently re-released is Editor's Choice in BBC Music Magazine and in Gramophone (Nov 2010)
"A disc of real distinction... leaves the competition standing"

"This recording is to be cherished for the beauty of the sound, the music and the exceptional performances" The American Organist;

"I place King's performance (Poulenc) up with the best." The American Record Guide.
 
The CD Lollipops 2 (Regent Records) has just been released, and is available from Bath Abbey Shop; see Links.

Reviews for recent CD Homage to Handel:
"This disc ranks as an unexpected highlight... As one would expect Peter King plays with vigour and clarity and shows his command of the majestic Klais Organ...
A dazzling expression of the performer's virtuosity... reflects the perfomer's formidable skill as an interpreter and communicator" - Organists' Review

 "hugely imaginitive and brilliantly executed...  King is on fire, despatching this difficult music with considerable elan...
a perfect recital, to be returned to often"  
Choir and Organ
