The death of Simon Preston in May 2022 represented "a great loss to the musical world in a way that impacts far beyond the confines of a remote corner of the profession." With these words, Choir & Organ paid tribute to one of the most admired musicians of his time. His skills as a performer and conductor, his quick wit and charming demeanor endeared him to countless people who deeply mourn his loss. Decca pays tribute to him with the first of two box sets of recordings by this inspiring musician. The current edition collects his complete recordings on the Argo and L'Oiseau-Lyre labels, as well as several international CD first releases. Reviews "His impressive talent at the keys, combined with a wealth of experience as a choral conductor, as well as energy and charisma, ensured that he was in great demand for many decades."
