Anders Rinde, is a cantor, or music supervisor, at Vereide Church in the Nordfjord region in western Norway.

He will perform at Cromer Parish Church on Tuesday, June 26, after being invited by David Shippey, Cromer church organist.

He will be playing a programme of Norwegian organ music which has never been heard in Cromer before.

The music will include the composers Trond Kverno, Bjarne Sløgedal, Knut Nystedt, Oskar Hansen and Arild Sandvold.

Mr Rinde first visited England as a music student from Oslo, on a trip to London, and has never been to Norfolk before.

The first mention of an organ in Cromer Parish Church was in 1500, and the weekly organ recitals began in 1885.

The 2018 season will mark the 133rd year, with concerts planned throughout June, July, August and September.
