It is hard to put into words the positive impact one of Australia's foremost concert organists Michael Dudman (1938-1994) has had both in Australia and abroad as both a performer and a teacher. 2004 saw the discovery of an entire set of unreleased master tapes of work Dudman performed for a Newcastle based radio station. After work was done to restore and remaster the original tapes, “The Great Organ at Methuen - played by Michael Dudman”, a recording of a magnificent performance from Dudman at Methuen Music Hall in Massachusetts, will be available on CD and as a digital download on August 7th, 2019 across all major music platforms, 25-years after Dudman's passing. 

“We are very excited about this release and others in the near future,” commented a spokesperson from MichaelDudman.com.  “To see this not lost forever is a true blessing.” 

  

“The Great Organ at Methuen - played by Michael Dudman”

features works by Louis Vierne, Alexandre Guilmant, Theodore Dubois, Joseph Bonnet, and Leon Boellmann.
