While Vierne’s organ music is widely celebrated and regularly performed, his extensive catalogue of songs is far less commonly heard. Incorporating texts from renowned poets such as Verlaine, Byron, Keats and Hugo, this recital explores fin de siècle song settings by Vierne’s students, colleagues and fellow organists, including rarely heard turn-of-the-century composers such as Amy Woodforde-Finden and Maude Valérie White.

St Martin's CafeBar opens at 1.15pm, serving hot drinks, juices, wine, beer, homemade cakes (including GF and vegan), savoury snacks and fruit. It will also be open during the interval and for a short while after the concert.
