What a delight! The concert “Two Giants of German Baroque Organ Music” is certainly one Victoria will remember for years. Bernard Foccroulle is noted as one of the world’s most impressive organ virtuosos, and it is well deserved. His renditions of Buxtehude and Bach held the audience in thrall, and a well deserved standing ovation filled Christ Church Cathedral at the finale.
