Sunday 5th June 6PM

St Mary's Church, Redenhall, Norfolk (on Suffolk border).

Maurice Greene - Voluntary in C minor

Louis-Claude D'Aquin - Noel No 10

Thomas Arne - 'Con Spirito'

Pietro Yon - Humoresque, from L'Organo Primitivo

Ernest Tomlinson - Andante Simplice

Peter Hurford - A Fancy

Flor Peeters - Postludium


Retiring collection. Refreshments available.

Redenhall is an amazing organ - certainly the best Holdich still in existence. Anyone who is near should try to get there! The church is easy to find - a whacking great tower sticking up through the trees - you can se it for miles.

The weekly summer series of organ recitals in Dunblane cathedral begin on Saturday at 12:00 with a lecture recital from the organist Kevin Duggan entitled "This Wondrous Machine". Those who know the instrument will agree that this should be a fascinating talk. The following Saturday is a song recital, then back to the organ for the remainder of the series.

Each recital is free with a soup lunch available by donation afterwards.
