AN EARLY winner of the St Albans International Organ Festival, David Sanger, is performing the next concert in a current series of recitals.

He will be appearing at 5.30pm on Saturday week, February 23, at St Peter's Church which will be followed by the annual meeting and dinner of the St Albans International Organ Society at which he will be guest speaker.

David, who has been teacher of organ at Oxbridge for more than 25 years, began his career as an organ recitalist by winning prizes at St Albans in 1969 and Kiel in Germany in 1972.

He studied at the Royal Academy of Music and then with Susi Jeans, Marie-Claire Alain and Anton Heiller.

For some years he was professor of organ at the Royal Academy of Music and visiting tutor in organ studies at the Royal Northern College of Music.

He has made numerous international recital tours and been a jury member at many organ competitions.

David has recorded many CDs, among them the Organ Symphonies of Louis Vierne, the complete organ works of Franck and a selection of trifles by Lefebure-Wely together with eight CDs of Bach's organ music.

His programme at St Peter's will include Leyding's praeludium in E flat, Three Chorale preludes by Bach and Lindberg's Sonata in G minor.
