Graham Davies, organ
This month's organ concert is given by Graham Davies, Organist and Choirmaster of St Mary & St Nicholas Church Leatherhead, and Organist of St Anthony's RC Church, Farnham Royal, Berkshire.
Last week Graham Davies gave the lunchtime organ concert at St Michael and All Angels, Croydon. In 2011 Graham's concerts included the new Skrabl organ at St Michael's the Archangel, Lyme Regis, a lunchtime concert on the Frobenius organ in Kingston Parish Church, a well-attended Sunday evening concert in St Paul's Cathedral, London and two further concerts in Chicago USA.
Any concert in which the restored 18th century Thomas Parker Pipe Organ is played has to acknowledge the instrument as one of the stars of the occasion. The parishioners and people of Leatherhead are justly proud of this historic instrument, and of the efforts they put into the fund-raising and many other arrangements for its restoration.
