As the Cathedral reaches its 50th Anniversary, so does its famous Grand Organ. Built by Walkers and completed just hours before the consecration in 1967, it has since been played by some of the most celebrated organists in the world. This year, we’ll pay tribute to the Cathedral’s much-loved Grand Organ in a special series of 50th anniversary recitals.
Award-winning organist Johann Vexo holds positions at both at Notre-Dame Cathedral, Paris, and the Cathedral of Nancy. We are delighted to host Johan at this exclusive recital, as he performs music by Franck, Widor and Vierne, concluding with Marcel Dupré’s Prelude and Fugue in G minor Op 7.
