Celebrity Organ Recitals for 2022
We’re excited to announce the return of our Celebrity Organ Recitals!
Recitals will begin on 17 July where we’ll welcome musicians from around the country to play some magnificent music on the Cathedral’s Harrison and Harrison organ.
Our organ has four manuals and 59 speaking stops, with over 3,500 pipes. The deepest pipes are 32 feet in length, while those that produce the highest sounds are a fraction of an inch in diameter. The majority of the pipework was new in 2010 when it was built, although some material from previous instruments was retained after thorough overhaul, cleaning, and re-voicing.
Musicians we’ll be welcoming to play on this amazing instrument are:
Formerly Director of Music, Canterbury Cathedral
Assistant Director of Music, St Edmundsbury Cathedral
Director of Music, St Edmundsbury Cathedral
Recitals start at 5.00 pm and no pre-booking is required. Admission is free and there will be a retiring collection.
