Just back from a most enjoyable trip to Potters Bar, where I gave the inaugural Gala Organ Recital on an organ newly installed in St Mary’s Church. Interestingly, the instrument is a transplant — made by T. C. Lewis for the old St Alkmund’s church, Derby, and rebuilt in 1972 for the new St Alkmund’s building, this fine 3-manual had seen scarcely any use as the church’s worship style evolved away from the organ. It proved the perfect fit for Potters Bar, once reconfigured and fully restored and updated by Henry Groves & Son, sounding cathedralesque in a fine acoustic. A large and supportive audience turned up — despite the coronavirus — and a good time was had by all — especially by me. See my Published Books page for a booklet about this organ.
