A final Elegy: Richard Jeffrey-Gray at the Rieger organ of Clifton Cathedral

Richard Jeffrey-Gray made a final recording on the Rieger organ of Clifton Cathedral, on 19 March 2020, before services ceased as the result of the current emergency. 

Rather aptly he chose George Thalben-Ball's Elegy which was apparently conceived as an improvisation to fill in time at the end of a BBC-recorded service during the World War II, and which Thalben-Ball dedicated to Walford Davis who preceded him as organist at the Temple Church in London.
