Leeds Parish Church Recital

Leeds Parish Church Recitals
Picture of organ stops at Leeds parish church.

By chance last Friday lunchtime I caught an organ recital at Leeds Parish Church.

I had actually called into the church for a coffee in the cafe and discovered that every Friday luchtime there is a free recital (there is a retiring collection).

The Leeds parish Church lunchtime recital programme is here.

  1. It's wonderful when you can feel the sound of an organ through your feet. As a child, I used to be fascinated by the word 'diapason'.

  2. I like details and you have found a very interesting and unusual one to show us. Great image!

  3. Great post Paul, I just love reading the names on organs keys, Fourinture, Double Ophaceide, fab words, no idea what they mean (or sound like)!

  4. How wonderful for you to show up at the exact time for a free recital! Don't you just love it when things happen that way? It is something that just makes one's day and it turns into even more of a treat when you can share your findings with others. - Love the words on the organ stops. They remind me of the choices that you have while playing on an electronic keyboard.
