Jonathan Hagger
Jonathan Hagger, has been playing for services at KCM for more than 20 years, gained his ARCM under Richard Popplewell (St Michael's Cornhill and Chapel Royal). He and his wife Anne met when she joined his church choir when they lived in Essex. He has played organs as far apart as Sydney Town Hall and Washington Anglican Cathedral but his favourite instrument is St Sulpice in Paris where he met the celebrated organist Marcel Dupré on several occasions.
His programme will start with a festive section, which will include the popular March from Scipio by Handel. The second half will be more meditative and feature a Mozart clock piece originally unearthed by Gillian Weir and copied by hand for Jonathan, Messiaen's timeless Banquet Céleste, one of Dupré's vespers and the Pie Jesu from the Requiem by Fauré.
