Providence Church, New Mills, Derbyshire 11am

Each day during Open Church Week at Providence Church Gordon Stewart plays a concert of organ music including favourites such as Widor’s Toccata and Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor and Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring alongside music for Christmas from France, Germany, England and the United States. This year the programmes include all the Advent and Christmas preludes from Bach’s Orgelbüchlein and all eleven preludes from Aaron Show’s Sounding Joy.  The organ is a very fine three manual instrument by J J Binns of Leeds dating from 1914. 

 

Coffee is served from 10.30 and the recital is followed by soup and cake lunches. There is no charge, but contributions are welcomed.
