Many thanks for playing for us at St John's recently. It was a wonderful concert; a well-planned programme, well presented and beautifully performed. You truly made the most of our lovely Hill/Hele organ, and the audience really enjoyed it. Your programme ranged from baroque through to some contemporary Andriessen and showed both the versatility of the organ and our own versatility as a performer. It was good to hear the Anna Amalia di Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel what a mouthful!) - something which was new to me and to most of the audience. Your programme introductions were both interesting and witty and added much to the occasion. I shall be leaving St John's myself very soon, but I have given your contact details to Fr Nick and I'm sure that he will ask you back to St John's very soon. Thank you again for a wonderful recital.
