Martin Neary, the former Organist of Westminster Abbey, offers another wonderful programme designed to show off the resources of the splendid organ at St Michael’s.
His programme reveals Bach’s extraordinary powers of invention within traditional forms. The recital opens and closes with two of Bach’s greatest masterpieces, the Fantasia and Fugue in G minor and the Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor. Contrasting with these massive works are five preludes by Bach, based on Passion chorales, and a delightful selection of 17th and 18th century English voluntaries, which will provide an opportunity to hear some of the new sounds of the recently restored St Michael’s organ
