AES London 2010 Saturday, May 22, 20:00 — 21:30
Organ Recital @ 20:00Temple Church Temple, London
Graham Blyth’s traditional organ recital will be given on the organ of the famous Temple Church, a late 12th century church in London located between Fleet Street and the River Thames, built for and by the Knights Templar as their English headquarters. In modern times, two Inns of Court (Inner Temple and Middle Temple) both use the church. It is famous for its effigy tombs and for being a round church. It was heavily damaged during the Second World War but has been largely restored. The church contains two organs: a chamber organ built by Robin Jennings in 2001 (a three-stop continuo organ), and a four manual Harrison & Harrison organ. The Harrison organ will be completely renovated from July 2011 until Easter 2013.
Access at the weekend is via Tudor Street only. Map available at the Special Events Desk.
The featured works are by Hubert Parry, George Thalben-Ball, Charles Villiers Stanford, Frank Bridge, Percy Whitlock, Louis Vierne, and Leon Beëllmann.
