Jennifer Bate plays the opening concert on the restored organ at St Peter Pilning

On Saturday April 30th Jennifer Bate played a concert of music from Handel to Samuel Wesley on the newly-restored William Allen chamber organ. Jennifer has supported the restoration of the organ from the beginning and gave us a wonderful excursion through the English organ music of the period, and through the colours available on this lovely little organ, including the new mixture (Sesquialtera bass and Cornet treble), Bassoon and Hautboy treble in its new nag’s head swell box. A time-lapse film of the dismantling of the organ by the Director of Music Jonathan Edwardes can be seen here
