We had a wonderful day on 12th October 2019 visiting St Mary’s Church Abercrombey Street and Dennistoun New Parish Church in the East End of Glasgow.
St Mary’s has an excellent Hill Norman Beard two manual organ high up in the gallery, overlooking the magnificent Church. Dennistoun New Parish Church has a Willis 3manual instrument which sounds superb in the acoustics and setting of the church.
Our grateful thanks to both churches for allowing us access to these fine instruments in beautiful buildings.
