Eton college RCO masterclass day

On February 8th Paddy Russill led a masterclass on the Wingfield organ, with pupils of David Goode at Eton College.  The organ is currently in the Verey Room at Eton, as part of an exhibition organized by Magnus Williamson and Dominic’s daughter Lucy (Deputy Librarian in the College Library at Eton) around the Eton Choirbook, which has recently been inscribed on the UNESCO ‘Memory of the World’ register.  Paddy also gave a stimulating lecture about choral and organ music of the early 16th century, with Eton choral scholars and the audience contributing to the faburden, and finished with a concert.  The day was organised by Simon Williams and the Royal College of Organists.
