Henry Macey Organ Recital

St. Andrew's Hall, Norwich was full of the Henry Macey Fan Club on Tuesday lunchtime as we were treated to an Organ recital that warmed our hearts. With a varied programme there was something for everyone.

The programme consisted of Voluntary No.3 in C - Beckwith, Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor BWV 582 - Bach, Pastorale (Six Pieces) - Franck, Eucharistia, Meditation on East Aklam - Watson, Pomp and Circumstance March No.4 in G major - Elgar, Le Cygne (The Swan) - Saint-Saens and Toccata - Lanquetuit.

Henry Macey is organist at Aylsham Parish Church and gave a wonderful performance in this splendid historical Norwich Hall. When a swan swims it sits on the water. When you hear great organ music you feel very privileged. This was a lunchtime treat not to be missed.
