French Pipe Organ Toccatas

William Ralph Driffill - Toccata in F Minor
Organist: Hector Olivera on the Allen Organ



Born in 1875 in Dunstable, Bedfordshire. The only son of William and Maria (nee Potter). He was a student at the Royal Academy of Music where he recieved various medals for his playing and composition. He then became organist for the parish church of Monken Hadley, Hertfordshire, where he also undertook to tutor private students, conducted choirs as well as composing and performing concerts throughout the south of England. He died suddenly of pneumonia in 1922. I know he's British but I am going to include him in this thread.
