The Binns organ in the Albert Hall, Nottingham, UK

Centenary Commission

2010 marked the centenary of the inauguration of the Binns Organ by Edward Lemare. To celebrate this special landmark, and with generous support from Nottingham City Council, we commissioned our friend Naji Hakim to write a single-movement work based on the nineteenth-century hymn tune "Nottingham".

Dedicated to our Custodian David Butterworth and now published by Schott, "Fanfare for Nottingham" was premiered by David on 6th June 2010. This was followed up by a repeat performance at David's Albert Hall recital on 7th August 2011. You can download it from the Recordings page.
