Eboracum Record Society

Eboracum was the Roman name for the garrison at York, so not surprisingly, this society was based there. The Eboracum Record Society is thought to have been formed in the mid-1940s specifically to record the organ in York Minster. However, the records such as the one seen here are understood to date from the 1950s and it may be that they were pressed by EMI.
The 10" discs had an E-100 catalogue series and 12" were in the E-500 range, but it is not known how many different ones were issued.
The organist and composer, Francis Jackson, who is the performer on some of the records, was the incumbant organist at York Minster at the time.
