St Andrews Music Evening

It was a very discerning audience that attended the Organ Recital in St Andrew's Church last Friday evening,30th September, and they were not disappointed with the programme selected by Philip Rushforth,Director of Music at Chester Cathedral, on his return visit.

Philip's programme consisted of Dietrich Buxtehude's "Toccata in F", Hubert Parry's well known "Chorale Prelude--Eventide", the ever popular J S Bach's "Prelude and Fugue in E minor", John Stanley's "Voluntary in C major", Loiis Vierne's "Liel (24 Pieces en style libre), and concluded with Mozart's "Fantasia in F minor"

With the added bonus of the camera showing the versatility of of both hand and foot movements of the organist on a screen, the concert was over all too quickly, and emphasised both the quality of our organ, and the fine acoustics atmosphere that our church provide. It was indeed both an honour and a privalege to spend an hour in the company of such a Master at the organ.

The next recitals will be on Friday 21st October, when we welcome Glyn Mon Hughes, Organist at St Saviour's,Oxon, and Saturday 19th November with Philip Underwood, Director of Music at St Bartholomew's, Wilmslow.

The last recital of the series will be on Friday 9th December, and will be the farewell concert of St Andrew's Musical Director, Michael Reynolds. Should you wish to be present for Michael's final service, please join us at Chorale Evensong at 6.30 p.m on Sunday 13th November. You will be very welcome.
