Any Recitals?

I know many of you will be busy at christmas, as I will be, being a butcher. I have one of my 2 weeks holiday in between christmas and new year, I normally go to Spain, but this year with the credit crunch, or shortage of money :blink: I have decided to stay in this country and see and hear an organ or two. So I am wanting to know if there are any recitals going on that are not on recital.com, as they only show Kelvingrove, Glasgow at the moment

 

best wishes

I'm playing one on New Year's Day at St Paul's in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham... http://www.paulcarr.co.uk/ThursdayLive.htm

How is the old girl nowadays? I used to enjoy my weekly lunchtime recitals there, and thought it a very versatile instrument for its size, action "problems" not withstanding....

 

Sounds very good, the building really helps, as does the skill of the 1964 H,N&B voicer who has made some pretty poor pipework sound really well. The Bishop ranks are beautiful. :blink:

Not so good to play due to the action issues, :lol: but I've got used to it! :lol:

We're developing plans to, eventually, sort it out.

If you're on the west side of the country Chester has recitals every Thursday at 1.10 pm although since this year Christmas falls on a Thursday that's one day we'll miss. 18th Dec and New Year's Day will continue as usual. When the recent Antiques Roadshow was recorded in the Cathedral it happened to be a Thursday but we all decamped to the Song School and had an excellent duet recital there. It's a boast that only Christmas Day comes in the way.

That sounds like a good idea, Brum is a fairly short drive, and as I have not been for a few years, ( last time was recording at St. Chads) it will be nice to have a quiet walk round
