Birmingham Town Hall - Organ Recital

The following day saw a bit of a change from Brit Floyd when we went to a lunchtime organ recital at Birmingham Town Hall.
The organist was Thomas Trotter.
Thomas Trotter is a British concert organist. He is Birmingham City Organist and organist of St. Margaret's, Westminster (along with the St Margarets choir) and visiting Professor of Organ at the Royal College of Music, London.
Here's the magnificent organ...

The ceiling was covered with lighting and loudspeakers

Interestingly, there were perspex shields above the lights which I presume was to prevent the heat from the lights damaging the plasterwork of the ceiling?
