September Organ Crawl

Our new session is well under way in preparation, and we are excited to announce our September Organ Crawl to kick start our 54th Year!   Timings have still to be completely finalised but will be soon!

Our President, Tom White, has arranged the following interesting organs to visit on Saturday 10th September.  

  1. Linlithgow St Michael’s Kirk – One of the finest examples of a large medieval burgh church. Consecrated in 1242 on the site of an earlier church, most of the present building dates from the 15th century with some 19th- and 20th-century restoration. Situated beside Linlithgow Palace.  Willis organ installed by Matthew Copley 2001 from Queen Ethelburga’s College, Harrogate.
  2. Kirkliston Parish Church – Late 12th-century church with tower sited on a elevated position. Later alterations and additions in 1687, 1822 and 1883 – the last by Robert Rowand Anderson. Organ by Ingram of Edinburgh 1925.
  3. Winchburgh Parish Church – The church at Winchburgh is in the largest village in the parish, and sits on a mound next to the canal, set among trees. The interior has recently been refurbished: pews have been replaced by seats, and this allows us to change the seating arrangements. The most striking feature of the church is the window above the communion table, illustrating the Ascension.  The organ is by JW Walker and was previously located at St Mary’s Kirk, Haddington.

If you want to come along please let us know.  Simply complete the form below and we will add you to the list!

About us Founded in 1962 we’ve been serving Lanarkshire’s Church Musicians for almost 50 years. We exist to promote organ and church music – whatever form that may take! Our membership is small with only 20 or so members, but we represent a wide spectrum of ages and interests. Our aim is to encourage those with an interest in Church music and music in general – especially the young, promote music activities in relation to the organ and build a social network of organists in Lanarkshire, to adapt to the changing needs of organists and musicians and church music in general.
