Another corner stone of music in chapel is the organ recital series and we could not hope for a more suitable performer for the occasion than John Butt.

John is an artist of the very highest quality who has been closely associated with King’s College throughout his career, ever since serving as Organ Scholar.

He performs a richly varied programme including works by Olivier Messiaen and the ever-thrilling King’s alumna Errollyn Wallen.

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.

Please note: This concert starts at 7.30pm will be broadcast live on Radio 3. Please take your seats by 7.25pm. Please turn off all audible devices. Latecomers please wait quietly at the South Door of the Chapel, and you will be admitted after the Widor Toccata.

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