Organ Recital

Rachel Mahon 02

The Canadian born organ scholar of St Paul's Cathedral London, Rachel Mahon, gave the tenth Aperitif Recitals organ concert on Thursday night (1st October) at St Mary's Church Haddenham.

She played the five movement fifth organ symphony of Charles Marie Widor — the one that concludes with the famous toccata, frequently used for wedding recessionals — to an audience of one hundred and twenty people. This was the first time Aperitif Recitals had welcomed a female organist and the audience appreciation of her playing was rapturous.

Aperitif Recitals promote two organ recitals each year. Each concert is no longer than forty minutes and the audience enjoys wine and canapés as they both listen to, and view the organist on the digital video network, in the church.

The whole format of Aperitif Recitals has proved most successful and this is verified by the consistently high number of people who attend each concert.
