Simon Lindley, Organist Emeritus, Leeds Minster

Including music by Samuel Sebastian Wesley appointed the Leeds Organist 175 years ago this year in 1842, Hull-born virtuoso Alfred Hollins, who died 75 years ago in 1942 and Dr Francis Jackson CBE, born on 2 October 1917

Sunday evening organ concerts in August date from the major restoration of the instrument twenty years ago this year, in 1997. The great majority of the recitals have been given by Dr Simon Lindley, Organist and Master of the Music from 1975 until 2016 and now Minster Organist Emeritus. Admission to each concert is free of charge and retiring collections are taken in support of the Friends of the Music of Leeds Minster – the Friends make the Minster a major grant each year for the maintenance and tuning of this fine instrument.

Please note the earlier starting time this year.
