Wednesday@One Organ Recitals

Our weekly recitals are friendly and entertaining, consisting of 45 minutes of top-class organ playing, with the recitalists introducing pieces as they go. You can join us at 1pm for the free recital, or come along from 12:30pm for a buffet lunch (only £4).

Winter 2022 Season

Welcome to our winter series of Wednesday@One organ recitals, welcoming top-class recitalists from across the country.

This season we feature chorale preludes from The Orgelbüchlein Project, a major international composition project to complete J S Bach’s Orgelbüchlein (Little Organ Book).  The manuscript of Orgelbüchlein has 118 missing pieces, ghostly gaps with only the title penned by Bach. Each of these gaps is filled by a new composition based on Bach’s intended melody. The new pieces, written by some of the most interesting composers at work today, survey a range of modern styles.

Recitalists have chosen at least one chorale prelude from The Orgelbüchlein Project, which forms the basis of their programme. You can expect varied programmes, showing off some of the best and some of the least known organ repertoire.

Please click a recital to find out more about the recitalist and their programme (where available).

You can also find out details of all our upcoming organ recitals on the Organ Recitals website

Summer 2022

Music played during this season included J S Bach’s “Great Eighteen” Chorale Preludes. These are pieces written in Leipzig, when Bach was Kantor at St Thomas’s Church, and represent the pinnacle of his sacred music for solo organ. The elaborate works are all based on different German hymn tunes, and Bach treats the melody in ingenious ways to create sumptuous mini masterpieces.
