 Press notices for ‘Dances of Life and Death’, Chandos CHAN 10315

‘…Whitehead’s more spacious approach reveals greater clarity. His sense of rhythmic bounce, coupled with a fastidious choice of colour, creates a strongly atmospheric performance. The recording, too, is outstanding…A winning disc.’

Gramophone Magazine, Jan 2006

‘…Whitehead’s compelling playing represents advocacy of a high order.’

BBC Music magazine, June 2005

'The engineering is excellent; a wonderfully resonant space… England seems to have a knack of developing young organists who become quickly proficient in the French literature. I hope to hear more from this excellent talent.' 

American Record Guide

'But what appeals most are the performances and the recording. Whitehead has an instinctive feel for this repertoire and a technique to match. The crisp voicing and attack of the splendid organ in Auxerre Cathedral is likewise more than equalled by the sophistication of the recording.'

International Record Review

'This is one of the most attractive organ discs that I have come across in the recent past. The whole programme is extremely intelligently devised and presented… The booklet notes are informative and well written… Amusing, too, are Alain’s cartoons, which are dotted around the booklet. But what appeals most are the performances and the recording. Whitehead has an instinctive feel for this repertoire and a technique to match. The crisp voicing and attack of the splendid organ is Auxerre Cathedral is likewise more than equalled by the sophistication of the recording.'
