Andrew Benson-Wilson plays Worcester’s historic Tudor organ

Date(s) - 23rd Jun 2017
13:00 - 14:00

Andrew Benson-Wilson will give a recital on the ‘Wetheringsett’ Tudor organ at St Swithun’s Church in Worcester on Friday 23 June, 1pm.

Andrew says “The ‘Wetheringsett’ organ is a reconstruction of a Tudor organ based on the soundboard of a c1525 organ that was found during alterations to a farmhouse in the village of that name in Suffolk.

For this recital, I will be playing English music from before, during, and just after the 1520s, with pieces from c1360 to one of Thomas Tallis’s two extraordinarily monumental Felix Namques, dating from around 1560. In contrast I will play a Voluntary by Samuel Wesley on the 1795 Grey organ, published just a few years after the date of the organ.”

Admission is free, with a retiring collection.
