Recital Programme

The summer holidays are nearly over and after another week away (with a friend and her family) I am ready to get back to school work and recital preparation! My programme is now confirmed and my Grandpa (Baba) has been busy writing notes so he can introduce pieces for me. Without the notes the programme will seem odd to most, but it tells the story of my organ playing, from my first experience of an organ through to playing my first recital, with many ‘first’ experiences in-between. So here it is, ready for Gillingham Methodist Church at 3pm on 15 September.

Indian Pony Race – D C Glover (1925-1988)

A variation on ‘Liebster Jesu’ – J G Walther (1684-1748)

Nun freut euch, lieben Christen gmein – Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)

Animated – Samuel Wesley (1766-1837)

Praeludium et Fuga ex E-Dur – Johann Caspar Simon (1701-1776)

Glory be to Jesus – F Filitz (1804 – 1876)

Variation on ‘O Little Town of Bethlehem’ – Wibur Held (b1914)

Magnificat, Op.41, No 2 – Felix Alexandre Guilmant (1837 – 1911)

Komm, Gott Schopfer, Heiliger Geist – Samuel Scheidt (1587 – 1654)

Tuba Tune – Craig Sellar Lang (1891-1973)

Postlude on an Old Irish Blessing (no.5-Andante Maestoso) – Charles Villiers Stanford (1852-1924)

Prelude in E BWV 566 – Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)

‘Menuet Gothique’ from the Suite Gothique – Leon Boellmann (1862 – 1897)

Paean – Philip Moore (b1943)

In dir ist Freude (BWV 615) – Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)

Very excitingly, whilst I’ve been away, I have also been invited to play a recital at St Mary’s Church, Portchester on 20 August next year and I have another possible recital in the pipeline. I’ll keep you posted!

  1. Anna what a wonderful, imaginative idea to programme your organ playing history. It gives a lot of variety, but is a challenge that I am sure you will live up to. Just sorry that I shall be in Scotland and so can’t hear it
