 For our Wednesday @ One Organ Recitals!

The recitals are friendly and entertaining, consisting of 45 minutes of top-class organ playing, with the recitalists introducing pieces as they go. This season will feature a line-up of nine organists, starting with Alexander Woodrow from Leeds and ending with an international feel with recitals from Sara Musumeci from Italy and Hans Uwe Hielsche from Germany. 

Music played during this season will include J S Bach's "Great Eighteen" Chorale Preludes. These are pieces written in Leipzig, when Bach was Kantor at St Thomas's Church, and represent the pinnacle of his sacred music for solo organ. The elaborate works are all based on different German hymn tunes, and Bach treats the melody in ingenious ways to create sumptuous mini masterpieces.

 Entry is free and there is an optional buffet lunch at 12:30pm before the recital for £4.
