His Lordship s Delight - Treasures of 18th-century Keyboard Music from the Fitzwilliam Museum's Collection - are to be played at a concert to launch a £25,000 appeal to replace the pipe organ at All Saints' Church, Bawdeswell.

Dr Gerald Gifford, honorary keeper of music at the Cambridge museum, will include some recently-discovered pieces by Handel, together with a number of works having close associations with Richard, Viscount Fitzwilliam (1745-1816) founder of the museum.

He will be playing a baroque organ and a harpsichord at the church on Saturday, June 14.

The church wants to replace its Edwardian pipe organ with a 21st-century Makin digital organ.
