Ann Elise Smoot and Simon Lindley - Concert Programs

This week, the Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) is having their Carolina Course for Girls and Adults and Organ Institute. It's a week including nightly organ recitals, organ Masterclasses, and Choir and Vocal technique building. For me, I'm just interested in the organ recitals, and if I could, swing by to listen in on the Masterclasses.

There are three organ recitals this week, the first was performed by Ann Elise Smoot, and tonight's was presented by Simon Lindley. Their programs are as follows. Carlo Curley's will be posted tomorrow evening.
