We are pleased to announce that this summer (2015) we have arranged, in conjunction with Selby Abbey Trust, to host a number of Celebrity Organ recitals played on their spectacular Viscount Regent 356 digital organ. (We installed the organ in Sept 2014).
Our organ will be installed while the historic William Hill organ undergoes restoration by Principal Pipe Organs of York. All proceeds of these recitals will go towards the Organ Appeal. Tickets are free, but a retiring collection will be gratefully received.
This prestigious series of concerts will feature cathedral and concert organists from the UK and from Europe who are among the most distinguished performers in the world.
The recitals will be at lunchtime (12:30pm) at Selby Abbey and the line up of players will be as follows:
July 7 Dr Roger Tebbet (from Selby Abbey)
July 14 Joshua Stephens (from Manchester)
July 21 Dr Franz Hauk (from Ingolstadt Minster)
July 28 Paul Parsons (from Pontigny Abbey)
Aug 4 Paul Hale (from Southwell Minster)
Aug 11 Jan van Mol (from Antwerp)
Aug 18 Michael Overbury (from Newark)
Aug 25 D’Arcy Trinkwon (from Worth Abbey)
Sep 1 John Scott Whiteley (from York)

I have had a passion for church organs since the tender age of 12. I own and run Viscount Organs with a close attention to the detail that musicians appreciate; and a clear understanding of the benefits of digital technology and keeping to the traditional and emotional elements of organ playing.
