WELCOME TO THE LONDON ORGAN CONCERTS GUIDE
Welcome to yet another bright array of organ music from Cathedrals, Churches, Chapels and Concert Halls in London and beyond.
This year marks the 750th anniversary of Henry III’s church at Westminster Abbey, richly celebrated in their Autumn/Winter programme. And, just down the road at Westminster Cathedral, you can take in the premiere of Jean Guillou’s nine-organ ‘La Révolte des Orgues’. Nobody could complain that the organ music scene in London is lacking in variety!
This diversification also applies to the number of nationalities represented amongst recitalists – eighteen at the last count, including St Paul’s Cathedral’s Great European Organists Series in September and St Margaret Lothbury’s long‑standing International Celebrity Recital Series.
Christ’s Chapel, Dulwich and St Paul’s, Deptford continue in Celebrating Women Organists and our many regular venuesunderpin this scene.
Sadly, we bid farewell to distinguished organist, Peter Wright, who retires from Southwark Cathedral after thirty‑one fruitful years at the helm. We send our very best wishes to him for this new chapter in his life, congratulate him upon his achievements and thank him for his continued support of the LOCG. We welcome Ian Keatley from Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin (a former Southwark Cathedral Organ Scholar) who takes over the reins in September and wish him a long and happy tenure.
Promoting Organ Recitals…
…is not as easy as it might first appear. Our companion publication, Choir & Organ, publishes monthly from September and, in October, will be producing a guide detailing how to successfully arrange and promote organ recitals. This will hopefully stimulate discussion and imagination and will include material for both the experienced and newcomers alike. It should provide plenty of food for thought.
In the meantime, enjoy this Autumn/Winter season!
