St John’s Church is fortunate to have one of the finest organs in the diocese; a 4-manual William Hill organ dating from 1897, which is still referred to as ‘a magnificent piece of exceptional artistry’. We are delighted to welcome Jeffrey Makinson, Assistant Director of Music at Lincoln Cathedral, to play an exciting and varied concert including music by JS Bach, Nicolas de Grigny, Felix Mendelssohn and Francis Jackson, along with three works by Louis Vierne to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the composer’s birth.
