About our Recital Programme

Most of our recitals showcase our wonderful Father Willis pipe organ. You can read more about the organ, and we hope you will come to hear it at one of our recitals.

Sometimes, our recitals take the form of a “come and sing”, open to all. A scratch choir rehearsed and performed Handel’s Messiah in March 2012, shown above.

You can always buy tickets on the door at any of our recitals. So please come along, and we promise you a warm welcome!

You can listen to Jonathan’s organ recital recordings on his YouTube channel.
