    This extraordinary work is a virtuosic masterpiece, and one that many-an-organist might be fearful of performing, let along recording, 'live'. Jeremy Filsell's masterly musicianship and skills here produce a stunning live account of this important work.


    Signum Classics are proud to release Jeremy Filsell's debut disc on Signum Records -Christus: Passion Symphony by Francis Pott.
    The five movements of Christus trace the Coming of Christ; Gethsemane; the Via Crucis/Golgotha/the Deposition; the Tomb; and, finally, Resurrection – portrayed not as a prolonged psalm of victory already achieved, but as a vast struggle towards ultimate triumph.



    Not a work beholden to any other: rather, an astonishingly original composition, compelling in its structural logic and exhilarating in performance. All in all, a stupendous achievement"
    The Times


    "A tour de force"
    The Spectator


    "Arrestingly original ...the large-scale cohesion fulfils its designation as 'Symphony' with monumental conviction"
    Musical Times


    "I found this performance by Jeremy Filsell invigorating and overwhelmingly exciting"
    Musical Pointers


    "An inspired work on a grand scale that gradually reveals its greatness"
    Gramophone
