The program will feature works from the great symphonic repertoire, appropriate to this enormous and overwhelmingly impressive space, together with some other of the Vierne Fantaisie pieces appropriate for St Paul's.

2005 marks the 500th anniversary of the birth of Thomas Tallis, composer, organist, father of English Church Music and the last organist before the dissolution of Waltham Abbey Church. This is the third of a series of concerts being held at Waltham Abbey to commemorate this event.

It is part of an old market town, the market still in use, and has an Edwardian Town Hall. It is on the northwest outskirts of London, on the edge of Epping Forest, which has been for centuries a favourite royal hunting ground. In 1177 Henry II refounded and enlarged the already old church as part of his penance for the murder of Thomas Becket, we are told in a fascinating article by Clare Stevens in Choir and Organ.
