Following the enormous success of Sarah Baldock’s organ recital on 15 April, our own Director of Music, David Halls, gives a recital on Wednesday 13 May at 7.30pm as part of the 2015 Organ Recital Series with Big Screen.
The recital, which features organ pieces which have been requested specifically by members of the audience, is given in aid of the Southern Cathedrals Festival (this year held at Salisbury) and all concert takings will be put towards this cause. The deadline for requests has now passed, but the recital programme is published below, and features many classics, including Bach's virtuosic Toccata, Adagio and Fugue in C, and Edwin Lemare's popular Andante 'Moonlight and Roses'.
The organ loft and organist (including views of the organ console and pedals) will be visible to audience members sitting in the Cathedral Nave via a big screen; those who prefer to experience the recital without this added element may still sit in the Quire.
Salisbury Cathedral presents a series of six organ recitals, which take place in April, May, July, August, September and October 2015. The series features six well-known and highly accomplished solo performers and, for the first time, each recital in the series will feature a big screen relaying a video-link to the organ loft. All recitals are on Wednesday evenings, at 7.30pm.
