Canterbury Recital


Alexander Bliss & Matthew Jorysz

Alexander and Matthew were the joint winners of our 2008 Organ Festival and, as part of this award, gave a recital in Canterbury Cathedral after evensong on 8th May. 

Alexander is now 15 years old, and Matthew 16. Both played with great confidence and maturity, belying their age, and fully exploited the resources of the cathedral organ. Their individual programmes became progressively more difficult, and one word came to mind — awesome.
