Programme 2023

Saturday 27th May 2023

East of England Organ Day - French Organ Music for the liturgy and chant – Chelmsford Cathedral – 10 am to 5 pm.

This event is being led by the Essex Organists’ Association with the help of Chelmsford Cathedral staff and will include masterclasses on the Nave organ, a lecture-demonstration, and a service in the afternoon with liturgical audience participation. The day will make use of the cathedral’s two pipe organs (Chancel and Nave), a rarity in English cathedrals but which are ideally suited for the plainsong-based liturgy from the French school at the time of Couperin and De Grigny. The Cambridge Association along with the other IAO affiliated Associations in East Anglia are supporting this event and this will form our May meeting. Further details including how to book tickets will be included in our Spring Newsletter.
