Partita on \’Bristol\’

Members of the Bristol and District Organists\’ Association met at the church of All Saints Clifton on the evening of Wednesday 25th November to play the recently restored J.W.Walker organ, and to share their ideas about new and unfamiliar repertoire. Among the players was Sue Gregory who gave the first public performance of a Partita on \’Bristol\’ specially composed for her by Paul Ritchie. The Partita is a set of six variations in baroque style based on the hymn tune \’Bristol\’ which is usually sung during Advent to the hymn \’Hark the glad sound, the Saviour comes\’.
