Within our regular series of Sunday recitals at 4.30 pm, we are holding a special two year long organ recital series called Organ Giants to celebrate 150 years of the Willis organ of St Paul’s. This series began in 2021, and as part of it, we are thrilled to present the complete organ works of J.S. Bach and Mendelssohn, alongside works by Robert and Clara Schumann and Brahms, with selected works demonstrating the influence of J.S. Bach.
