Iain Quinn has performed in many of the world's most important centres including Westminster Abbey and the National Cathedral in Wasshington DC. He has also composed works for choir and organ which have been performed around the world.

This was a splendid performance to finish this year's Summer Recital series at St. Peter Mancroft Church. A wonderful choice of programme played to the highest quality. Well deserved applause rang out around the church as Iain Quinn completed his recital. Another very enjoyable afternoon at this historic Norwich venue.
