Organ Recital

2nd of July 2007

The magnificent organ at St. PaulÕs church resounded to a feast of music on 18 May when an enthusiastic audience assembled to hear Alex Mason perform.
Alex has been the organist at Lichfield Cathedral for some years and his concert began with a performance of BachÕs Fantasia in G. This was followed by William ByrdÕs Fantacy, works by Haydn and Mendelssohn, ElgarÕs Imperial March and an unusual and charming work by Herter and Howells. The recital concluded with the Berceause and Finale of the First Symphony by Vierne.
Alex performed a stunning encore of improvisatons on the well-known Toccata by Widor, played with hints of the theatre organ and using the organ at St. PaulÕs to the full. The whole evening was an absolute treat and much enjoyed by all who attended. It has recently been announced that Alex has accepted the appointment of Organist and Master of Choristers at St. DavidÕs Cathedral.
