James Rippingale – Guitar Recital
“MEMORIES OF THE ALHAMBRA”
The award winning classical guitarist James Rippingale makes his St John’s debut with a programme of musical delights and guitar favourites.
Featuring pieces by J. S. Bach along with his own unique compositions and ending with a musical journey through the heart of Spain, the programme will include the timeless guitar classics Asturias by Albeniz and Tarrega’s enchanting Recuerdos de la Alhambra as we journey through the rich ‘sound worlds’ of this majestic instrument.
Free Admission; Retiring Collection in aid of The Challice Well Glastonbury and St John’s Church.
Laying at the foot of Glastonbury Tor, the Chalice Well is one of Britain’s most ancient of Holy Wells. It has been a great source of inspiration and peace for many years, to many people including James. Since 1959 the well has been maintained by a charitable trust that strives to keep the Well as an enchanting place to visit.
