    Organ Recital July 2024

Friday 5 July, 12.30 pm

The recital at 12.30 on July 5 th will be a special celebration in honour of Edward Scott’s 90 th birthday.
Edward will play favourite pieces by Bach (Herr Jesu Christ dich zu uns wend, from the Leipzig ‘18’)
and the Tune in E by George Thalben-Ball (the organist at the Temple Church in London when
Edward and I were young…) Edward’s outstanding pupil Anthony Gray (formerly of this parish) will
be here to play a prelude from a recent piece by himself as well as the final section of Duruflé’s op 4
(Choral Varié sur Veni Creator). Edward has asked me to play Bach’s famous Fugue in E flat (known
as the St Anne Fugue or the Trinity Fugue), and I shall also play a short set of variations on Howells’s
hymn tune for ‘All my hope’, which I wrote at the end of May for this occasion. Christopher Rathbone
