Magnificat – music for Advent

Following the outstanding success of the 2019 Orford Organ Festival, St Bartholomew’s Church’s wonderful new Collins organ will again be put through its paces by Douglas Hollick on Advent Sunday.

Well known as a specialist in early keyboard instruments, Douglas Hollick studied organ with Peter Hurford while organ scholar at Hull University, subsequently with Marie-Claire Alain in Paris, and both organ and harpsichord with Gustav Leonhardt in Amsterdam. Douglas will perform a programme of Baroque music, for which the organ was primarily designed.
