Bridlington Priory Church


Anyone who has been to an organ recital at the Priory or indeed heard Michael Smith play at a concert or the recessional at the end of a service will know what a magnificent sound the organ produces. ‘Organ Favourites’ was an opportunity to hear well-known organ favourites superbly played on a unique instrument – you might call it a ‘classic FM selection’ for organ.

Furthermore, it was possible to nominate a piece to be played by Michael Smith at the concert, for a donation to Priory funds if the request was fulfilled.
