Organ Recitals

Lunchtime organ recitals are held in St Mary's Church on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 13:00 and last approximately an hour.   The recitals will be preceded by bread and soup for all in the church hall from 12:00.  There is no charge for admission but there will be a retiring collection to offset the series expenses. 

Richrd Pearce will be giving the next recital on Tuesday July 19th at 13:00. Richard'sprogramme will include music by Buxtehude, J S Bach, Lefébure-Wély, Vaughan Williams, Lloyd Webber and Ives.

Future recitals include Tim Rivalde (Chichester Cathedral) on August 16th, Claudia Grinnell (Winchester Cathedral) on September 20th, Carl Jackson (Chapel Royal, Hampton Court Palace) on October 18th and Richard Moore (Guildford Cathedral) on November 15th

The organ was cleaned and overhauled in 2020 by Andrew Cooper & Co., Organ Builders, based at Ryde on the Isle of Wight.  The overhaul included the installation of a new electronic control system and some minor tonal changes.
