Alan Gidney has been the choir’s organist and rehearsal pianist for 14 years and has always impressed with his good humour and the versatility and sensitivity of his playing.

The concert, which will be conducted by Peter Brown, will see Alan play two solo pieces for the organ, by Sigfrid Karg-Elert. It will also feature one of his favourite works, the Requiem in C minor by Luigi Cherubini as well as two movements from Beethoven’s Mass in C and choral pieces by Mendelssohn, Rossini, Brahms and Bruckner.
