Lea Singers at Academy St Albans

Notre-Dame: Rising in Song

Saturday 16 November 2019, 7:30pm

The acoustic of Notre-Dame in Paris has been almost completely muted by the fire that raged on 15 April. The Lea Singers are seeking to recreate its lost sound, inviting two organists to perform on Hauptwerk’s state-of-the-art virtual Metz Cavaille-Coll organ, and the overhead loft organ at St John’s, which will be used to accompany the Choir in Vierne and Yves Castagnet, two composer-organists associated with the Cathedral, and in Jonathan Dove’s Seek him that maketh the seven stars. Duruflé was also an organist at Notre-Dame and Bruckner gave the inaugural recital after it was renovated in 1870.
