Known as the Congregational Cathedral of Scotland, Ward Chapel opened in 1833.

I include this programme as, by the addition of instrumentalist and singers to an organ recital, it demonstrates how three different classes of music lover from the general public can be brought together in an enriching manner.   It also provides a relief from an evening of just organ tone and, of course, greatly increases the numbers in the audience.  (How many times do we see organ recitals with an audience of c. 50?)
