Organ Recital at Celbridge


The organ recital and sacred concerts which will be held at St. Patricks Church, Celbridge, on Saturday next, 4th July in aid of the new organ promises to be one of the most brilliant musical events in the Co. Kildare for some time. The recital will be given by Mr. J. Magahy, of Cork, the builder of the organ, whose name is rapidly rising as the most brilliant organist of the day. In fact his firm is the only firm of organ builders in the Free State to-day. In addition to the organ recital the following distinguished artists have kindly consented to assist – Mr. W.J. Hobbs (tenor) (Feis Ceoil Gold Medalist), Mr. A. O’Farrell (baritone, winner of Plunkett Green Cup), Miss Teresa Ownes (soprano), Miss Flossie Howley (contralto), Miss Maud Davin (viola winner of the Vandeleur Scholarship, R.I.A.M.). By special request Mr. A.J. O’Farrell will sing the world famous “Pro Peoattis” from Rosini’s “Stabat Mater,” while Mr. W. Reidy will play Schubert’s “Ava Maria” accompanying the organ with the cello. With such a distinguished galaxy of artists, and the good name of the concert, it is sure to attract many well-known lovers of music in the Co. Kildare to Celbridge on next Sunday 4th July, at 7 o’clock.
