Sigfrid Karg-Elert’s three pieces, originally imagined for a theatre organ, provide a chance to show some of the Cathedral organ’s more unusual sounds.

About the Leeds Lunchtime Organ Music 2023/24 series
The series is curated by Leeds City Organist, Darius Battiwalla, and features a wide variety of talented organists. It currently takes place at St Anne’s Cathedral on a Monday lunchtime between 1.15pm – 2.05pm. The concerts are all free to attend and everyone is welcome. You don’t need to book in advance, just turn up on the day and enjoy the music. Donations are a great support to these lunchtime concerts, and we are very grateful for all contributions from those who feel able to. You can donate to the pay-as-you-feel retiring collection at concerts or you can donate online at any time.
You can also watch the concerts from the comfort of your own home. Recitals are recorded live in concert and usually remain available to watch on our website in the 30 days after the performance.
A note from Darius Battiwalla
We’re very grateful to the Dean and the Cathedral staff for making us so welcome. As usual we have a wide variety of talented organists, from ‘local’ musicians at York Minster, Derby Cathedral, Lincoln Cathedral, and Durham Cathedral, to organists from London and Athens. We have return visits from Margaret Phillips and Richard Gowers, and we welcome some outstanding younger players for the first time. Following the success of our first Royal College of Organists Young Performers concert last year, this is now a regular fixture.
Don t forget to send in your suggestions for the February request programme – ideally by Christmas. Thank you all once again for your continued support of the series, we couldn’t produce this season without the significant contribution your donations bring, and it’s great to see so many of you every Monday. If you can’t join us in person, we’re continuing to make each recital available online for 30 days after each concert, so please spread the word as widely as possible.
