Bank Holiday Organ Recital at Norwich Cathedral

On Bank Holiday Monday 2nd January 2012 I attended the Norwich Cathedral Organ Recital from the Cathedral's Organ Scholar Kris Thomsett which attracted a large audience including some from the faraway land of Kent.

The programme consisted of In Dulci Jubilo BWV 729 - Bach, Imperial March - Elgar, Fantasia Ut re mi so fa - Byrd, La Nativite Du Seigneur - V - Les Enfants De Dieu - Messian, From the Orgelbuchlien: Herr Christ, Der Ein'Ge Gottes-Sohn BWV 601, Lob Sei Dem Allmachtigen Gott BWV 602, Von Himmel Hoch, Da Komm' Ich Her BWV 606 - Bach, Noel etranger - D'Aquin, Passacaglia in D BuxWV 161 - Buxtehude, Hymne d'actions de graces Te Deum (from Trois paraphases gregoriennes Op.5) - Langlais and Festmusick from Vag a leve (Dare to live) - Takle.

This was a wonderful and varied programme that thrilled everyone in attendance at Norwich Cathedral at the beginning of a new year. A time to celebrate and as the closing piece states dare to live.
