Organ recital by our very own wonderful Duncan Honeybourne with refreshments.
Duncan Honeybourne gives the first in a summer series of three organ recitals at All Saints Church. This exciting series will inaugurate the newly restored organ as a recital instrument, following the extensive restoration by leading organ builder Andrew Cooper in 2017.
Duncan will play and introduce organ music by composers including William Byrd, John Stanley, Jean-Adam Guilain, Howells, Darke, Sumsion, Alain and Mathias, and a highlight will be the world premiere of “A Dorset Divertimento” by Richard Francis.
Richard, whose organ music has been played worldwide and a CD devoted to it recorded on the organ of Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, was Organist of Ludlow Parish Church, Shropshire, for 30 years.
This new suite concludes with “A Wedding March for Wyke”, inspired by All Saints Church.
We will be delighted to welcome Richard to Dorset to attend this first performance.
