The great great great grandson of a blanket maker who gifted the organ to Witney Methodist Church will perform a recital on the newly-restored instrument.

Nicholas Morris, assistant director of music at St George's Church in London's Hanover Square, will play music by Bach, Mozart and Mendelssohn.

Mr Morris spent his early musical years as a chorister at Westminster Abbey and subsequently as a Music Scholar at Uppingham School.

He was the Organ Scholar at Queens’ College, Cambridge from 2011-14, where he also read for a degree in music.

After graduation, he became Assistant Organist at Birmingham Cathedral and spent a period as Assistant Organist at Clare College, Cambridge.

He has performed extensively as a soloist both in the UK and abroad with singers and instrumentalists.

Mr Morris took organ lessons with William Whitehead, and continued his studies in Birmingham with Henry Fairs.

The organ has three manuals and was built by Hill, Norman and Beard in 1919, and rebuilt in 1995 by Roger Taylor of Bristol in 1995 with electric primary action. It was given by the family of Charles Early (1824-1912), the Witney blanket maker.

Mr Morris is his great great great grandson.

The recital on Sunday September 5 from 3pm will last about one hour and celebrates the completion of work by Harrisons of Durham to replace the five original air reservoirs.

No tickets are required.
