Organ music from the Suffolk coast

A recital of organ music from the Baroque to the present day, performed by Catherine Ennis on the instrument recently installed in St Bartholomew's Church, Orford, Suffolk.

Saved from flood and from years in storage, the magnificent organ made by Peter Collins in 1977 has found a new home on the Suffolk Coast. In a varied programme, virtuoso organist Catherine Ennis demonstrates the colours of the newly restored instrument now delighting listeners in St Bartholomew's Church, Orford.
