St Andrew's present Musical Director, Michael Reynolds, was on hand last Friday, 21st October, when he stepped into the breach, on hearing that the scheduled organist Glynn Mon Hughes was indisposed!

With only three hours notice he was able to put together an Organ and Piano recital which delighted his audience.

Starting on the organ, he performed the bright and breezy "Alla Breve" by J.S.Bach,followed later by Vaughan Williams "Hymn Prelude", and moving to the piano, he gave us Chopin's "Waltz in B Minor & Raindrop Prelude", and Einaudi's "I Giorni."

A Jazz section followed, firstly on the organ with Warren's well known "September in the rain", and then on the piano three Rock Preludes by his favourite Jazz composer Christopher Norton, "Sunshine piece" "Barnyard Blues" and "Sturdy Bill."

The finale of the evening was the much loved "Crown Imperial" by William Walton.

The next Organ recital at St Andrew's will be on SATURDAY 19th November at 7.30 p.m. when we shall welcome a return visit from the organist of St Bartholomew's Wilmslow,Phillip Underwood.
Our final recital of the series will be Michael Reynolds Farewell Concert on FRIDAY 9th December at 7.30 p.m.
