New Year's Day Recital at St. Peter Mancroft Church
The programme consisted of Praeludium in g No.1 - Tunder, Hymnus Rex Christe factor omnium (O Christ, our King, Creator, Lord) - Praetorius, Motet coloration Alleluja, laudem dicite deo nostro (Allejuia, declare praise to our God) - Scheidemann, Piece d'Orgue BWV 572 - Bach, Sonata No.II in d - Mendelssohn and 5 Chorale Variations on: Herr Jesus hat ein Gartchen - Peeters.
This was a wonderful celebration of Northern European Organ Music to bring in the new year. The Church looked beautiful with displays of colourful flowers as we were treated to a splendid programme that included Heinrich Scheidemann's Allejuia, declare praise to our God.
