Organ Festival continues at the Cathedral...
The fourth annual Organ Festival continues at St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds, on Saturday 10 May 2014. Following the success of previous years, the Festival showcases well-known organists from far and wide, offering first-class organ music on the Cathedral’s Harrison and Harrison organ, throughout the year.
This recital will be played by Peter Crompton, Former Director of Music at Royal Hospital School, Holbrook. The recital, which begins at 5.00 pm and is free of charge, will include works by Mushel, Bach, Liszt and Messiaen.
‘The Organ Festival offers a musical to treat to local audiences and visitors alike,’ comments James Thomas, Director of Music at St Edmundsbury Cathedral.
The organ was completely refurbished in 2010 and was further enhanced by the installation of two new painted and gilded cases which have transformed the interior of the Cathedral.
The Organ Festival continues throughout 2014 with recitals by Timothy Byram-Wigfield, Gerard Brooks and Stephen Farr as well as the Cathedral’s own musicians, Dan Soper and James Thomas.
