This Gala organ recital at Llandaff Cathedral by international concert organist David Briggs (Artist-in-Residence, St John the Divine, New York & Organist Emeritus, Gloucester Cathedral) explores the recently installed and acclaimed organ by Nicholson & Co. David’s programme will feature repertoire and, from this astonishing exponent of the art of extemporisation, a symphonic improvisation of more than 30mins on three Welsh melodies.
