St Chad’s Cathedral, Birmingham – Thursday LIVE Organ Recital Online
April 8, 2021: 13:15 - 13:45
David Saint and Paul Carr play the JW Walker organ in St Chad’s Cathedral, Birmingham.
Thursday Live Organ recitals usually take place on the first Thursday in every month but are suspended currently due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Meanwhile we are offering these short ‘as live’ videos as an alternative.
This recital has been released a week later than usual as it is a programme of music relating to Palm Sunday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Day, which we thought it more appropriate to release now than during Holy Week.
