Following history being made with the installation of a pipe organ at Kenardington for the first time, we are delighted that one of the foremost keyboardists of the last few decades has accepted the offer to return to the concert platform to inaugurate the 1805 Thomas Elliot organ.

Gary Cooper will be well-known to many of you, not least for his long association with Tudeley Festival, but also as conductor of New Kent Opera, apart from his keyboard playing on both harpsichord and fortepiano, let alone the organ. For those of you who have not witnessed his formidable command of the keys, the accolades on our website speak for themselves.

Gary's fascinating programme, A Reverential Awe upon our Spirits, as well as remembering Mr. William Byrde - His Quatercentenary, (No.4), explores the rich and often neglected repertoire around the time that Thomas Elliot was building organs at 12 Tottenham Court in London, and includes pieces by some immigrants to the United Kingdom of Great Britain.

Please join us for what promises to be a very special occasion. Book now at
