Organ Festival winner Simon Thomas Jacobs will be returning to St Albans Cathedral on Saturday to give the final concert in a recital series.
Winner of the First Prize for Interpretation and the Audience Prize at the 2013 International Organ Festival, his programme utilises the broad range of repertoire he brought to that event.
It will start from 5.30pm with music by Louis Marchand from the court of Louis XIV at Versailles, through Germany with J S Bach, and his pupil Johann Ludwig Krebs, then back to France and to the symphonic organs of Paris for music by Louis Vierne and Maurice Duruflé.
The recital, organised by the International Organ Festival Society, will culminate in two relatively recent works by English composers – Nocturne by David Sanger and Sinfonietta by Philip Moore.
The St Albans recital will precede a summer spent touring the UK and France, including recitals at Notre Dame de Paris and on the Dom Bedos organ at the Abbey of Ste Croix, Bordeaux.

Entry to the recital is free with a retiring collection in aid of the International Organ Festival Society. After the recital the audience will have the opportunity to meet the soloist at a reception in the cathedral refectory.
