About the Artist:

Peter first played the organ when he was a young chorister at Waltham Abbey, but it was only after his retirement from teaching that he switched his allegiance from flute playing to playing the organ as his main musical focus. He has been organist and choirmaster at St. Mary Magdalen church in Thorrington for 14 years. Peter also plays as a freelance organist in many churches in N.E. Essex and Suffolk.
