Postage options

Whilst the Willis organ of 1877 was being restored in 2015 an 1867 French harmonium was purchased instead of hiring an electronic instrument. Here we hear one of Vierne's large-scale mass settings, Guilmant's sonata as originally written for harmonium, and some of the choir’s favourites which have featured not only in Sunday Evensong services, but also on choir tours.
