Benjamin Britten in Lowestoft - 4 June, 1934

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 213:

After dinner I go for a bit of Heathcote Statham's organ recital at St. Johns - sheer duty because I loathe org. recitals. He doesn't play badly - but, like most organists with practically no rhythm. He played some ludicrous music - Widor etc.
