The restoration of St Bride’s historic Hill organ by Harrison & Harrison of Durham has been completed and was officially ‘handed back to us’ last week.
The congregation will hear it for the first time for the Gloria during tomorrow evening’s First Eucharist of Easter, beginning at 8.00pm with the lighting of the Easter Fire.
The inaugural organ recital will be given by Henry Fairs (Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and Birmingham University) on Saturday, April 28th at 7.30pm. All are welcome.
The recital is free of charge, but donations will always be welcomed to the dedicated fund set up to ensure the future maintenance of the organ and also of the Steinway Concert Grand Piano also housed in St Bride’s.
More information, details and photographs of the restoration can be found on the St Bride’s website, www.stbride.org.uk
