As part of the firm’s 150th anniversary we commissioned Cecilia McDowall to compose a new work for the organ, Sacred and Hallowed Fire. We are delighted that Robert Quinney agreed to give the première of this as part of his farewell recital at the Abbey on Palm Sunday 2013.
To celebrate the firm’s 150th anniversary, we ran various events throughout 2011, including:
- Workshop tours
- Cathedral recital & Durham celebration
- Touring exhibition
- Composition competition
