Matthew Cooke, organist at St Mary’s Petworth, is offering a fundraising live-streamed organ recital from the church.
Featuring French, German and English music, it will take place on Sunday, January 31 at 5pm and will be live streamed simultaneously on St Mary’s Petworth Facebook page and the church’s YouTube channel.
If you can’t listen at the time, you will be able to catch up with it after the event. Hopefully this event will go some way to helping to lift people’s spirits at this time of the pandemic. The programme will last around 35 minutes and is shown below.
The recital will be free to view – however, donations to church funds would be much appreciated at this time – these may be made via the link on St Mary’s website.
