Special recital for Rogate organ

ROGATE Church will celebrate the refurbishment of its organ with an organ recital on Saturday, October 15.

The varied programme will feature works by JS Bach and William Walton, to be performed by Mark Wardell.

Mr Wardell was assistant organist at Chichester Cathedral from 1997 to 2009 and is currently director of music at Barrow Hills School in Godalming, after positions at Royal Holloway College University of London, St George’s Chapel, Windsor and Christ’s Hospital, Horsham.

His work in Chichester involved many live BBC broadcasts and recordings.

The recital will start at 6.30pm.

Admission is free, but donations are invited towards the re-roofing of the nave.
