On 7th October some 9 members of SOCA spent a very enjoyable day exploring 3 significant organs in Bristol.

Starting at St Mary Redcliffe, we were privileged to hear and play this fine instrument. Then, similarly, on to Christchurch in the City, and ending at the Cathedral.  We had ample time for everyone to try out repertoire which ranged from Couperin to Guilmant, Bach to Bridge.

Many thanks to Andrew Kirk at St Mary Redcliffe, Jonathan Price at Christchurch and Mark Lee at Bristol Cathedral for their generosity and encouragement. Special thanks to Peter, our Secretary, for arranging a wonderful day out, which was very much appreciated by all who attended.
