A new series of free organ recitals at Norwich Cathedral will pay a special tribute to Brian Runnett who was regarded as one of the most exciting organists of his generation.

Mr Runnett became the Cathedral’s Organist and Master of the Choristers in 1967, but tragically died in a car crash in August 1970 shortly after giving an organ recital at Westminster Abbey.

On this 50th anniversary since Mr Runnett’s death, the Cathedral’s three current organists – David Dunnett, Ashley Grote and George Inscoe – will present the Brian Runnett Memorial Organ Recital Series which will be performed in front of a live audience and made available to watch at a later date on the Cathedral’s YouTube channel.

In the 14 October concert, Norwich Cathedral's Master of Music 
Ashley Grote will perform:


Prelude and Fugue in E minor BWV 548 by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)

Symphonie II in E minor Op 20 by Louis Vierne (1870-1937)
i. Allegro
ii. Choral
iii. Scherzo
iv. Cantabile
v. Final

Free to attend but tickets should be booked in advance.
