A rare chance to hear the Corn Exchange organ in a programme of popular organ music
and transcriptions. The three-manual and pedal instrument was installed when the
Corn Exchange became a concert venue, and was the special project of Robert Cross,
the then Chief Executive of Ipswich Borough Council. It came from Paddington and
was restored and enlarged by Bishop & Son in Ipswich. Despite age and lack of use
it can still thrill and this concert is part of a drive to get it heard more often.
