Thomas Tertius Noble was an English born composer and organist. After the Royal College, he served at Ely Cathedral in the 1890s and then at York Minster from  1898 until 1913 during which time he also conducted the York Symphony Orchestra. His last appointment was at St.Thomas Church, Fifth Avenue in New York where Dr.Noble founded the choir school.  He is chiefly known for a B minor Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis but his organ music is unknown and unrecorded. John Scott Whiteley, the former assistant organist of the Minster has extensively researched his output for organ and Priory will be releasing his entire works from York Minster on three CDs. This third and final volume is typical of his creative style -  the programme being   easy on the ear and draws out the fine sound of  this organ. 

"John Scott Whiteley brings this music to life with expressive playing and finely chosen tempi that foreground Noble's melodic skills. The Organ at York is amply suitable for this repertoire and the extensive programme notes situate the pieces on this disc in the context of Noble's life and wider compositional output."     Martin V Clarke - Organists Review
