Huddersfield Lunchtime Concert
Huddersfield Town Hall

Tickets £5


When Huddersfield Town Hall was being built, a son of the town, Walter Parratt, then organist at Magdalene College, Oxford, advised the council to purchase an organ which Henry Willis had built for an exhibition hall in South Wales, but which they no longer required.  Parratt played the opening concert in 1881.  Soon after that he moved to St George’s Chapel, Windsor, and later still became Master of the Queen’s Music.  For this concert, you’ll hear Stanford, Parry, Howells and Erlebach works which are all dedicated to him.

Felton   A Little Tune
Parry   Fantasia and Fugue in G
Howells  Psalm Prelude ‘Lo the poor crieth’
