A lecture recital given by our Composer in Residence Michael Finnissy.

Also on this day is an organ recital in Chapel at 13:20 by our Herbert Howells Organ Scholar Glen Dempsey, which includes two Finnissy premieres. A further Finnissy premiere, 'Videte Miraculum' (inspired by the piece of the same name by Thomas Tallis) will be performed at Evensong at 18:30.

The Finnissy works are part of a projected series of nine works for the College, to be completed next year. The project has been made possible by the College Annual Fund and the Herbert Howells Organ Music Fund.
