A distinguished organ player has given his 100th lunchtime organ recital at the church where he is the director of music.

Peter Stevenson performed at the Princes Street United Reformed Church, and the recital included work by J.S. Bach and a more modern piece.

Mr Stevenson has previously given similar concerts both in Portsmouth, when he was Cathedral Organist and in Hong Kong when he was Dean of the Faculty of Music.

The Princes Street series started on November 1, 2001 and whilst it mainly consists of recitals of organ music, other instruments occasionally appear, including the church's Yamaha Grand Piano.
