Leonard Sanderman improvis[ed] with both imagination and flair! ... [he] wove together a particularly erudite and accomplished improvisation, that to an unwitting bystander could easily have been a composed accompaniment [to the silent movie]. ... the various changes of mood, between lucidity and intense drama, were captured superbly by the organ registrations chosen. A well deserved and rapturous round of applause concluded [the evening] ... with very grateful thanks to Leonard for sharing his notable gifts in improvisation.

Leonard Sanderman ... conjured breathtaking sounds from the instrument in his programme of "British Pomp and French Glitter".
Sunday obligation was satisfied at Temple Moore’s
stunning St Wilfrid’s, Harrogate. ... The choir sang well, and the
organ was played superbly by Leonard Sanderman: top marks.

This [performance of Reger's 'Ein feste Burg'] made the hair on the back of my neck stand up ... the player and organ were on fine form!
