Organ Recitals

Most years, Southwell Minster hosts a number of organ recitals featuring highly-skilled performers from around the UK and beyond. However, due to the COVID-19 situation, the recitals this year were all cancelled but just because you can’t come to the organ recitals doesn’t mean we can’t bring the organ recitals to you! So we’ve decided to record a weekly (mostly) series, with Paul Provost, Rector Chori at Southwell Minster taking up the mantle on our magnificent Screen organ.
