Music will include works by Archer, John Ireland, Bach, Gigout, Walton, Couperin, June Nixon, Frank Bridge, Norman Cocker’s Tuba Tune, Vaughan Williams, finishing off with Alfred Hollins Concert Overture in C.
Time: Sunday 27 October 2019 at 3pm (finish around 4pm)
Entry is FREE with Tea / Coffee served afterwards in the Transept (Retiring Collection)
Place: LYLE KIRK Greenock, Newark Street Building, PA16 7UR
Viscount Regent Classic at Lyle Kirk
The Regent Classic custom built Instrument has been installed in the pipe organ case which required removal of the pipe organ keyboards. Otherwise the instrument remains intact and we hope in years to come the church may find the energy and money to see the instrument restored. Meanwhile a very fine player who was struggling against overwhelming problems with the pipe organ can once again contribute properly to the worship and musical life of the church.
Please do go and support John. You will be delighted by his playing and our instrument will do a very good job as well!
