Organ Recital at the Cathedral...

Cathedral Director of Music, James Thomas will perform Messiaen’s La Nativité du Seigneur on Sunday 10 January 2016 at St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds. The recital starts at 5 pm and is free of charge with a retiring collection. All welcome.

La Nativité du Seigneur is Olivier Messiaen’s great cycle of music celebrating the birth of Christ and is performed annually at the Cathedral by James Thomas.

‘This piece is part of the traditional Christmas repertoire of music at the Cathedral,’ comments James Thomas. ‘I’ve played the whole work more than 20 times, having learnt it in France with my then organ teacher Louis Thiry, who played all of Messiaen’s organ music and was much admired by the composer.’

A full music programme for the coming year will be launched shortly including the annual Organ Festival, celebrating its 5th anniversary this year. The programme also includes concerts and lunchtime recitals.
