Organ Recital by Dr David Ponsford

St Annes Church Oldland Common
Saturday 13 April 2024 at 4pm

Dr David Ponsford

Organist, Harpsichordist, Musicologist;
Professor of Organ Studies at the Royal Academy of Music;
2024 winner of Royal College of Organists Gold Award

is giving a free recital of popular organ music to launch the fund-raising restoration appeal for the organ in St Anne’s Church.

His programme will include:

    • Bach’s Fantasia in G major
    • Liszt Fantasia and Fugue on BACH
    • Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D
    • Widor’s Toccata from Symphony No 5

– plus other works by Bach and Dandrieu, and some popular hymns

The organ is still playable (with a few quirks), so this is the start of a long journey towards restoration.
The cost appears huge, but we’ve got to start somewhere!
