Organists’ Workshop – Saturday 7th October 2017

 
This event was held at the Church of All Saints, Shaftesbury Road, Luton on their fine Mander organ. There were 6 active participants from churches in Biggleswade, Campton, Eggington, Leverstock Green, Royston and Welwyn. Each player was offered advice by Roger Carter, mainly on aspects of hymn accompaniment such as the choice of introduction, the use of appropriate stops, rhythmic spacing between verses and how to adapt worship songs idiomatically to the organ. The workshop concluded with a look at ways into improvisation with material derived from hymn tunes.
