Pevensey is to host an organ recital this lunchtime (9 June).
John Collins, an authority on early European organ music and organist at Christ Church, Worthing, will lead the recital at St. Nicolas Church at 1pm. Admission is free of charge, but a retiring collection will be taken for the St Nicolas Restoration Fund.
The programme will comprise pieces from across Europe from the 16th to 18th century including toccatas, variations, sonatas, fugues and voluntaries, as well as one work by a living composer. The concert, which will last about one hour, will conclude with the Hornpipe from Handel’s Water Music.
“We are delighted to be able to welcome back John Collins, and are most grateful to him for offering to play once more for the benefit of the Restoration Fund,” said Churchwarden Simon Sargent. The Fund is within some £22,000 of the £255,000 target. Restoration work, which began in March, will resume in September.
Those attending the recital are welcome to bring a sandwich lunch with them. Drinks will be available.
