We welcome distinguished pianist, Martin Roscoe, to the Temple in his 70th birthday year. The late-night atmosphere of Temple Church is a magical way to close the day, all the more so with this candle-lit performance of Bach's exquisite Goldberg Variations. Written - according to legend - to soothe Count Kyserlingk, who was unable to sleep, this mellifluous music has worked its healing effect on generations of troubled souls since.
