Organ Recital Friday, October 7th at 12.30 pm

The recital on Friday, October 7th at 12.30 pm is built round an early piece of mine, written as a graduate student at Cambridge in 1969, called October Music. The rest of the programme includes two Psalm Preludes by Howells (from the 1940 2nd Set), a touching Andantino by César Franck, and a brief set of variations on the Veni Creator plainsong hymn (we sing it to ‘Come Holy Ghost, our souls inspire’) by Maurice Duruflé.    Christopher Rathbone
