We regret that our organist Anna Lapwood, has had to withdraw from this event for personal reasons. We are pleased to announce that she will be replaced by Katherine Dienes-Williams.

The concert programme will change to the following

Katherine Dienes-Williams organ

J.S. Bach Pièce d’orgue
Maurice Ravel Pavane pour une infante défunte
Aaron Copland Passacaglia tr. John Festerman
Gabriel Fauré arr. Noel Rawsthorne _ Pavane_
Nadia Boulanger Trois improvisations i) Prélude ii) Petit Canon iii) Improvisation
Marcel Dupré Trois élévations
Olivier Messiaen Dieu parmi nous

We regret Anna Lapwood has had to withdraw from this performance. We are delighted that she will be replaced by Katherine Dienes-Williams, Organist of Guildford Cathedral. Katherine has created a stunning bespoke programme inspired by composer and teacher Nadia Boulanger; Bach to reference Boulanger’s love of ‘form and structure’, Ravel, Dupré and Messiaen who were fellow Paris Conservatoire alumni, Fauré who was Boulanger’s own teacher, naturally her own works, and Copland who wrote his Passacaglia for Boulanger, although originally for piano. Katherine has been Organist and Master of the Choristers at Guildford Cathedral since 2008 following six years as Director of Music at the Collegiate Church of St. Mary, Warwick. She was the first-ever female member to be elected to the Cathedral Organists’ Association, and on her appointment to Guildford, became the first ever woman to hold such a post in the Church of England. Katherine is also a prolific composer and award-winning recitalist.

Please note that there will be a cash only Box Office at this event. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
