Romantic Organ Masterworks

Author: hawkarine Published: 20th July 2013 13:28
 Dr Simon Lindley presents a series of four organ recitals in August 2013 entitled Romantic Organ Masterworks. The Leeds City Organist and director of music at the Minster will give four short concerts of about 50 minutes following Evensong.


A Wine and Cheese Reception hosted by Members of the Friends of the Music of Leeds Minster takes place after the final recital in the Series. We are very grateful indeed to those hosting this occasion.
