Over the past two years, the Director of Music at All Saints, Lee Dunleavy FRCO, has given a series of free recitals on the first Thursday of each month from September to May. Over these recitals he has introduced and explored the most significant of J. S. Bach’s organ works.

2012 saw a change in programme, as the organist took the audience “Around the World”, focusing each month on repertoire from one country. Full details of this very popular organ recital series are below.

 

Admission to the monthly series of recitals, which last around
forty-five minutes, is FREE, with a retiring collection taken.

 

A video projection screen is in use, enabling you
to see as well as hear the performer in action!
