Hild Bede Organ Masterclass Series: James Lancelot

  • This event has passed.

12 November 2016 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Hild Bede Chapel

Kicking off this year’s exciting Organ Masterclass Series is Durham’s own James Lancelot, Organist and Master of the Choristers at the Cathedral. He will be sharing his views on an up-to-date interpretation of Bach’s seminal work for organ, the Orgelbüchlein, the entirety of which he has recently recorded on the organ at Durham Cathedral. http://prioryrecords.co.uk/Bach-Orgelbuchlein-Lancelot-Durham-Cathedral-Organ


If you would like to take part in the workshop as a performer, please contact Louis Stockton (louisstockton@live.co.uk). This will be a fantastic opportunity to meet and perform with other organists in Durham, as well as with James. The Orgelbüchlein contains pieces of varying difficulties, and as a result is of course recognised for its pedagogical use; therefore any selections are most welcome for use in the masterclass. There are limited spaces to perform, so it is advised that you get in touch soon.

If you do not wish to play, but otherwise share an interest in Bach’s music, the event is open to observers. All are very welcome to attend.


We are very excited to work with James on this project – this is not an opportunity to be missed!
