Organists

There are two electronic organs – a three-manual Allen organ in the sanctuary upstairs and a Wyvern two-manual instrument in the chapel on the ground floor. We currently have two regular organists who share the rota, but we have contact with a number of external musicians whom we draw upon to fill in gaps and to provide extra accompaniment as required.

 The three manual Allen Digital Organ was installed when the Church was built in 1990.  The speakers are built into the roof, with the Swell in the Lantern, the Great and Pedals over the entrance doors and the Choir above the dais.  This makes for “all-around” sound when the manuals are coupled, although you may hear the sound emanating from these different locations at other times.

David MarkbyDavid Markby is one of the regular organists at High Cross, Camberley. He has been playing the organ here  since the church opened in 1990 and prior to that at Camberley URC since the late sixties.

David started to learn the piano at age 5 and encouraged by his father, also a church organist, won a scholarship to Trinity College London. Here, at age 12, he received his early organ tuition on Saturday mornings for 3 years. This was followed by tuition at his local Parish Church where he passed his Grade VIII exams.

 


 

Organ Recitals are arranged on the Sanctuary organ at lunch times on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays during June, July and August. A number of first class recitalists, together with our resident organists, give of their time freely. A retiring collection is made in support of our nominated Church Charities and the High Cross Organ Student fund.

Details of future recitals are usually available at Easter.
