Music at St Stephen Walbrook - not to be missed!


One of the great joys of being at St Stephen Walbrook is the quality of music that can be enjoyed. The next few days, however, are of particular note.

Tonight, the Italian classical pianist Claudio Crismani is in concert at 7.00pm. On this his second visit to St Stephen Walbrook, Claudio will play a selection of works by Bartok and Chopin on a Fazioli piano. Free admission with a retiring collection in aid of St Stephen Walbrook. For the full programme and a biography click here.

On Thursday at 12.45pm St Stephen's Voices will lead worship at our regular lunchtime Eucharist. The celebrant and preacher will be The Revd Sally Muggeridge.

Then, on Friday, we will enjoy not one, but two, Organ Recitals with the second being given by The Rt Hon The Lord Mayor, Alderman Dr Andrew Parmley.

At 12.30pm, as part of our regular programme of Friday lunchtime Organ Recitals, David Chan will perform a programme including pieces by Bach, Langlais, Wesley and Widor, among others. David Ho-Yi Chan is a young composer, conductor and organist born in Hong Kong whose music seeks to enrich the beauty of simplicity. Click here for more about David and his recital.

At 5.30pm, as the fourth in our new series of Free Music Recitals on the last Friday of the month (St Stephen's Serenades), The Lord Mayor will perform a programme which includes:
  • Prelude and Fugue in F minor, BWV 534 Johann Sebastian Bach 1685-1750
  • Voluntary III in C William Boyce 1711–1779
  • Toccatina Pietro Yon 1886–1943

  • Psalm Prelude, Set 1, No 1 Herbert Howells 1892–1983
  • Sortie in E Louis-James-Alfred Lefébure-Wely 1817- 1869
As with all our events, all are most welcome. More information about The Lord Mayor's recital can be found by clicking here.
