ORGANIST Jonathan Delbridge has recorded his new album at St Martin's Church, Liskeard.

He will be releasing A Confounded Box Of Whistles at a concert in St German's Church on Tuesday.

Jonathan is well known for his exciting and entertaining concert programmes on both the piano and organ.

Although based in Cornwall, he performs at small and large venues throughout the UK, including the Royal Albert Hall, Norwich Cathedral, York Minster and Plymouth University.

He likes to interact with audiences, giving interesting background information on the pieces performed injected with humour. It was Sir Christopher Wren who referred to the organ of St Paul's Cathedral as "a confounded box of whistles". Although not intended as a compliment, it is actually quite an accurate description of a pipe organ. The organ at St Martin's Church is regarded as one of the finest instruments in Cornwall, with three keyboards as well as a full pedal board and over 30 different stops.

Jonathan's recording shows the full range of colours available from the instrument.

To launch the recording, Jonathan will be performing a series of organ concerts, the first of which will be at St German's Church on Tuesday at 7.30pm. Tickets are £8.50 which include a complimentary glass of wine or soft drink. Under 18s and full-time students go free.

A Confounded Box Of Whistles will be available to buy.
