ORGAN RECITAL for Shrove Tuesday – James Flores

It has been a St. Matthew’s tradition to hold an organ recital on Shrove Tuesday (21/02/2023) served with pancakes! Last year, the Director of Music gave an organ recital and the year prior to that, I shared the recital with @ThomasSummerfield here:
I enjoyed playing today despite the hot and humid weather (although the church had the air conditioners prior to the recital beginning…which was much appreciated). I hope you enjoy my recital.
