New Year's Day Recital at St. Peter Mancroft Church

On Sunday 1st January 2012 there was no better way to welcome the new year then to attend the Mancroft Music New Year's Day Recital at St. Peter Mancroft Church, Norwich. This Organ Recital was given by Julian Haggett who is Organist at this historic Norwich 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.
