Thomas Trotter

Thomas Trotter

The magnificent organ is a vital and much loved part of the musical heritage of the Chapel and has an important role in the anniversary celebrations. This concert is devised to showcase the organ and the Chapel acoustic. The organ will sound magnificent in the gifted hands of Thomas Trotter, King’s alumnus and one of our great organists.

After the 2015 Nine Lessons and Carols service, the organ will fall silent for 9 months for essential repairs. This concert will raise money for the organ restoration and repair fund.

  • Widor: Toccata arr. Willcocks
  • Berlioz: Te Deum
  • Saint Saëns: Organ Symphony
