Concert Information

Hear the premiere of Neil Hannon's new work for the Royal Festival Hall organ.

The Divine Comedy frontman Neil Hannon reconnects with the sound of the organ, a sonic backdrop to his childhood as the son of a Church of Ireland bishop.

In this specially commissioned work, Neil has created a series of vivid musical scenes for organ and choir which evoke the constriction, the mystery and magic, the boredom, and the hard-won freedoms of a childhood Sunday.

Renowned organist Tom Bell performs the evocative playlist, alongside a specially formed choir for Neil Hannon's new work To Our Fathers In Distress.

Produced by Southbank Centre.
