Lynn Minster to live stream organ recital with Ben Horden
Lynn Minster will host a live streamed organ recital featuring an aspiring musician who has previously played with the distinguished Yorkshire Bach Choir and Yorkshire Baroque Soloists.
Ben Horden, who is currently Assistant Musical Director of the King's Lynn Festival Chorus and accompanist to the University of York Choir, will play the concert on Tuesday, at 12.30-1pm.
The concert will feature a performance of Charles-Marie Widor Allegro vivace from Symphonie V, op. 42, no. 1, César Franck Prelude, Fugue et Variation, op. 18 and Marcel Dupré Cortège et Litanie, op. 19.
With an affinity for 17th and 18th century repertoires, and particularly the music of Bach, Ben has forged a diverse career as a organist, conductor and keyboardist.
He specialises in the performance of organ music of the Baroque and previous career highlights include performing at the internationally acclaimed York Early Music Festival, the London Handel Festival, the King’s Lynn Festival and Queen’s College, Oxford.
With plans to launch his debut commercial recording, he hopes to champion Baroque organ music and increase the awareness and importance of the organ and its repertoire within today’s music scene.
The concert will be live streamed from the Lynn Minster Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/KingsLynnMinster/
Lynn Minster is also offering Lent and Easter packs to parishioners, with added activities for children.
Sharing on Twitter, they said: "Excited that our Lent & Easter packs are beginning to arrive at homes across the parish. They are suitable for people shielding, and we can add children’s activities too. If you’re local and would like one to help you observe Lent and celebrate Easter, do get in touch."
