About the event

4 p.m. James O'Donnell, organ concert

6 p.m. 30-minute talk about music at Westminster Abbey

James O'Donnell, LVO, British Organist and Master of Choristers at Westminster Abbey from 2000 to 2022, led the music at many royal and state occasions, including the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, lifetime celebration for Prince Phillip, and the State Funeral for Queen Elizabeth II. Mr. O'Donnell is now Professor in the Practice of Organ at Yale School of Music and the Yale Institute of Sacred Music.

“O’Donnell is a master of his craft, a man who conveys the sound of the often  monolithic-seeming organ with exceptional command of light and shade … In  O’Donnell’s hands, the Prélude et Fugue sur le nom d’Alain sounded as deft  and shapely as I’ve ever heard, virtuosic in finish, but touching, too.” 

Michael Dervan, The Irish Times, July 2008
