ORGAN PILGRIMAGE

Derby Cathedral’s Master of Music, Canon Peter Gould, has embarked
on a unique tour across the Diocese of Derby visiting all the Anglican
churches with pipe organs and playing each for around 15 minutes
over the next 12 months.  We will be following Peter on his adventures and he will give us regular
updates of his progress which will appear on this page

Peter said “I intend to do a Deanery at a time and play each
organ for about 15 minutes, some Bach plus something suitable for the
instrument.”

He added: “I hope that local congregations, visitors and school parties
will all be encouraged to listen and give a donation at the end which
will be shared 50/50 with the local music and the Cathedral music
programme.”

So far Peter has raised a total of £294. His next visits are listed below;
