Organ Recitals

For Spring 2021, Director of Music John Keys presents a series of recitals from St Mary’s, played on our highly effective and flexible Viscount digital organ, which is used to accompany the majority of choral services in the church. The Marcussen pipe organ is currently out of action – covered for its protection during works to the church’s central tower.

These recitals, produced in association with FS Records, are premièred here on this page, and available to view afterwards. If you enjoy them, please consider making a donation via the button at the bottom of this page, or by scanning the QR code below.
