A recital at Yarmouth Minster will be dedicated to the memory of Colin Fenn, who died in January.

Mr Fenn was organist at Caister’s Holy Trinity 
Church for 45 years and 
often played for services at 
the Minster.

The recital in his memory will be held on Wednesday from 12.30pm.

The organ music at the Minster will include the works of some of Mr Fenn’s favourite composers, Handel, Bach and Vaughan Williams as played by Martyn Marshall, John Farmer and Prue Goldsmith.

A former piano pupil of Mr Fenn, Hele Pye, will be playing Chopin and Debussy.

Light refreshments will be available.

Admission is free.

A retiring collection in aid of the organ funds of Yarmouth Minster and Caister church will also be held.

Mr Fenn died on January 1 and was a father of two.

Recitals are held weekly 
at the Minster and are all 
free to attend.
