Teatime Organ Recital

George Herbert organ

Free admission (retiring collection)
Tea and cake available from 3.30pm

We are sorry to announce that, for personal reasons, David Pipe has had to withdraw from this recital and are pleased to say that George Herbert has agreed to step in at short notice. His programme will include Buxtehude’s Tocatta in F BuxWV 157, and Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in C minor BWV 546.

George has just graduated from the University of Cambridge where he studied German and Music. Whilst at university, he was the organ scholar at St John’s College. In this role, he regularly accompanied the college’s choir in its routine of daily services, recordings and tours, helped to teach the 8-13 year old choristers, and occasionally conducted the choir – including in its 2021 Advent Carol Service on BBC Radio 3. His final year was particularly exciting, as it saw the long-overdue introduction of girls and women into the choir for the first time in its history. He is a keen pianist and trumpeter, and played in the St John’s College Big Band and funk group Lepage-Dean. Born in Manchester in 2001, his passion for music was kindled in earnest when he started singing in Manchester Cathedral Choir aged nine. George is a graduate of the Creative Oundle for Organists Summer School programme.

Performance ends at approximately 5.15pm
