Critics' Comments

21 January 2012 - The producer, Frederick Hohman, wishes to convey his sincere sympathy and condolences to the family, friends and countless colleagues and admirers of Gerre Hancock, upon learning of Mr. Hancock’s passing on 21 January 2012.

Choir and Organ Hancock’s improvisations, which take the cathedral’s Barillet windows as their inspiration, are brilliant, imaginative and accessible. This is a real feast for both eye and ear. - Chris Bragg

Journal of the Anglican Association of Musicians His (Gerre Hancock’s) exterior calm seems to belie his interior passion. ... What a master teacher he is to demonstrate the importance of complete ease at the console - even while summoning the most raging fire from within. - Jonathan E. Dimmock

Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians The entire set displays Gerre‘s extraordinary inventiveness, brought to life by his masterful and unselfconscious technique. ... The whole set is a simply staggering achievement. ... I most heartily recommend this double-disc set. - Victor Hill, Jul/Aug 2010
