Andrew Cantrill Organ Recital at St. Peter Mancroft Church

On Saturday 1st June 2013 I attended the Andrew Cantrill Organ Recital at St. Peter Mancroft Church, Norwich in the Mancroft Music Summer Recital Series. This was the first of this Summer's Recitals at St. Peter Mancroft which is always one of the highlights of the musical calendar in Norwich.

The programme consisted of Incantation pour un Jour Saint - Langlais, Cantilene improvise - Tournemire, Praeludium in E minor - Bruhns, Variations on Unter der Linden grune - Sweelinck, Seven Allegorical Pictures on Kling no, klokka - Eftestol, Andante in F - Lefeburne-Wely and Sortie in E Flat - Lefebure-Wely.

Andrew Cantrill is one of the UK's most experienced and versatile church musicians. His career has taken him to three continents, working in schools, churches and cathedrals, and he has appeared in some of the world's most prestigious venues as conductor, organist and singer. He now freelances from his home in Suffolk and enjoys a busy career of concerts, teaching and examining.

This was a wonderful programme of organ music which Andrew Cantrill played brilliantly to an enthusiastic audience at St. Peter Mancroft. I always enjoy listening to the organ at this Norwich City Centre Church during the Summer Recital Series.
