    After Choral Evensong at 5 pm there will be an organ recital from Michael Bacon.

    Michael Bacon began his musical career at the age of 5 when he began taking his violin to school with him. Despite almost total lack of practice, he managed to achieve enough fluency to start playing in local orchestras by the time he was 14, supported by his Father, who is a violist and conductor. However, it was his Grandfather who introduced him to the organ and it was that which really fired his musical imagination. He studied Music at Liverpool University after which he went to work for the BBC as a Sound Engineer. 34 years later, he's still there working exclusively for Radio 3 mostly recording Early, Chamber and Choral Music with the odd orchestra thrown in.
    Inspirational lessons with Thomas Trotter gave him hope that, one day, he might become a proper organist and he is still working hard at that.
    Michael is Organist at The Church of King Charles the Martyr in Tunbridge Wells.

    After the Choral Evensong at 5 pm there will be an organ recital by John Williams.

    John Williams studied organ at Caius College Cambridge with Douglas Fox and Arthur Wills. He was Director of Music at Cranbrook School from 1973 to 1985, which in those days boasted a choral society capable of performing works like Britten's War Requiem and Walton's Belshazzar's Feast. The school opera group performed a variety of works, including the Arts Council commission "The Seacock Bane", about the Hawkhurst smugglers, and the chamber choir regularly sang around the diocese, and in nearby cathedrals. He conducted the local orchestra, and various local choirs, and also spearheaded the appeal for the 1980 rebuild of the Willis organ in Cranbrook Church. He was then for many years in charge of the music at Hereford Cathedral School, and involved with the Three Choirs Festival. In retirement, John examines for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, and has recently returned to the area.
