FATHER WILLIS’S ORGANIC APPETISERS
Some of the above principles can be heard in practice in the coming months, not only during services, but also in a series of short ‘appetisers’ after the Sunday morning communion at St Mary Magdalene. After the service and a dignified pause, probably at around 11.30am, there will be an opportunity for those who wish to gather in the choir stalls and hear a short talk on a particular aspect of our organ’s capabilities (eg the quiet reed stops), followed by a short demonstration by one of our organists in the form of a piece featuring that particular ‘flavour’.
To further enhance the gastronomic delight a pre-Sunday Lunch appetiser or canapés will be served for you to enjoy while listening, having been expertly prepared by a culinary team drawn from our highly talented choir. All this for your delectation, in return for a donation (£5 suggested, or amount at your discretion) towards the organ renovation fund. The whole experience will last about 15 minutes and will set you up perfectly for lunch and the rest of the day.
The Appetisers will take place approximately once a month.
