With music from Handel to Vaughan Williams, from Elgar to Arvo Pärt, this concert promises to be an exciting and rewarding exploration of music written for organ and choir which spans several centuries. The programme, devised by Peter Parfitt, Aberdeen Bach Choir's Musical Director, celebrates the recent reinstallation of some original pipework into the cathedral's organ.

Opening with the rousing, uplifting music of Handel's Zadok the Priest, the concert leaps forward in time to feature music from two composers still living, Arvo Pärt and John McLeod, before closing the first part with the familiar strains of Vaughan Williams. The second part opens with another rousing anthem, this time from the mid-twentieth century, by Gerald Finzi. More serene music follows from Parry and Hastings with the closing piece giving its name to the concert 'I was glad'.
