Simon Lindley

22 September 2014 1:05pm - 1:55pm

The opening programme of the 2014/15 season features the complete published works for organ composed by Sowerby Bridge’s Norman Cocker.


Concert takes place between 1.05pm - 1.55pm.

Simon Lindley - City Organist
Smart - Postlude in C
Cocker - Interlude & Paean – Angelus & Trio Tuba Tune
Rawsthorne - Celtic Lament
Liszt - Fantasia and Fugue on a theme from Meyerbeer’s Le Prophète:
Ad nos, ad salutarem undam

He was born precisely a century and a quarter ago this year, whose Tuba Tune is one of the staples of the English romantic repertoire. His fame was not only on account of his long and distinguished service at Manchester Cathedral, but also in Lancashire cinemas. British music in the Victorian and Edwardian traditions, along with Dr Noel Rawsthorne’s highly evocative Celtic Lament, serve as curtain-raisers to Liszt’s monumental Fantasia and Fugue on a chorale from Meyerbeer’s opera Le Prophète – Ad nos, ad salutarem undam.
