The next organ recital on Friday, June 3rd at 12.30 pm is my own big set of variations on the hymn tune for 'Angel voices ever singing / Round thy throne of light' (it was originally written for these words by E.G.Monk 1819 - 1900). The variations were the largest of about 8 sets of hymn-tune variations that I wrote between 1999 and 2019, and by far the biggest: there are 20 in all plus an extended finale, taking nearly half an hour to play. They are, however, very varied in style, speed, volume and time signature - there are even a handful of jazzy or bluesy variations.  I shall first play the beautiful Fantasy in E major by Harold Darke 1888 - 1976 (best known for Darke in F and 'In the bleak midwinter'.) He was organist for 50 years at St Michael's Cornhill in the City of London, where he founded the famous series of lunchtime organ recitals which delighted office workers in the 'Square Mile' every week, and continue to do under his successors. Christopher.
