Dr Roger Williams, Music Director and Organist of St. Machar Cathedral in Old Aberdeen and former Organist to the University of Aberdeen, has been giving an annual organ recital from the early days of soundfestival

With the new arrival of the Aubertin organ in the University Chapel of King’s College in 2004, Roger invited composers to write a piece for that instrument and this year’s recital is a compilation of some of these pieces.
