Concerts and Recitals for 2020
You can help us keep the organ playing by coming to our concerts, or sponsoring a voluntary. We are also looking for more volunteers to help Julia Mathews with the refreshments and Ian Burgess with the screens at the recitals.
We hope our Saturday recitals may return in September, but watch this space for confirmation.
5 September The Annual Patronal Festival Organ Recital. Jonathan plays Liszt and his pupils including Liszt’s Fantasia on BACH and Reubke’s Sonata on Psalm 94
10 October The Brahms Requiem performed by the Parish Choir and visiting singers ‘from scratch’, in the piano duet version with Simon Gregory and Sarah Holmes (piano duet) and soloists from the Parish Choir.
All our concerts are on Saturdays at 7.30pm. They include close-ups of the soloists on ‘the big screen’, refreshments and programme notes.
Tickets cost £8.00 (18 and under £1). The only exception is for Brahms Requiem visiting singers, when the cost is £10 including hire of score.
Tickets are available ‘on the door’.

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.
