Organs in Denmark – An audio-visual presentation

Denmark
Alborg
Frederiksborg

In March 2016 David Butterworth organised a mega-tour of Denmark organs for the Nottingham and District Society of Organists. The week-long tour took in choir concerts, recitals, a visit to the Marcussen organ factory and visits to 39 organs, many of which members were able to play. For all participants, travelling the length and breath of the country, this was a memorable tour for its sounds, images, historic locations and above all for opportunities to meet friendly and welcoming Danish musicians.

Denis Littleton and Laurence Rogers will recapture the fascination and amazement of the visits together with the heart-warming community activities encountered in the Danish world of church music. All will be brought back to life with a selection of photographs and video recordings taken on the tour.
