Although much has been written about the Festival Hall organ itself, the history of the `Wednesdays at 5.55' recitals was undocumented until Harry Hoyle took on the task as a labour of love. Drawing on the Southbank Centre archive, private paper collections and the memories of many performers, in this comprehensive and engaging book he tells the story of how the series was planned, which organists performed, the repertoire they played and how the recitals were received by the press and by the public. He also reviews the social changes that led to the ending of `Wednesdays at 5.55' and the search for the best way to present the highlights of the organ repertoire on this unique instrument.
