Our calendar year will finish, as last year, with an organ recital by Andrew Johnstone in St Joseph's church, Glasthule on Tuesday 28th November at 2.30 - note the later time.
Dr Johnstone is a member of the Music Department in Trinity College Dublin.
The programme has the title "Bach and his pupils and is pupils' pupils".
Up to the 20th century, a series of notable German, Belgian and then French organists have been claimed to constitute an "apostolic succession" transmitting Bach's organ playing and composing methods down the centuries. The recital will move backwards in time from the 20th century, and geographically from France via Belgium to Germany.
Apart from J.S. Bach himself, the programme will include any or all of the following:
Johann Christoph Kittel
Johann Christian Heinrich Rinck
Adolpf Friedrich Hesse
Last year's recital was very enjoyable and members are encouraged to bring family and friends if they so wish.
