Church con­cert

Hamilton Advertiser - - DON’T DRINK & DRIVE -

St Mary’s Church in Hamil­ton will be the venue for an or­gan con­cert this Fri­day evening.

Or­gan­ist David Hamil­ton will play just two pieces – a sonata by Stan­ford and a Cho­rale Fan­ta­sia by Reger.

The Stan­ford was writ­ten 100 years ago and is based on his well-known hymn En­gel­berg.

And the work by Reger is based on a Ger­man cho­rale called Straf Mich Nicht and was writ­ten in 1899. Both works are ideally suited to the church’s or­gan, a fine Vic­to­rian in­stru­ment built in 1889 and re­cently re­stored to its orig­i­nal con­di­tion.

Ad­mis­sion to the con­cert, 7.30pm at the church on Auch­in­gra­mont Road, is by do­na­tion pro­gramme (£7/5/1) and in­cludes re­fresh­ments.

For more de­tails, con­tact the Rev Ian Bar­croft on 01698 429895.
