Beethoven's splendid variations on "Ein Mädchen oder Weibchen' begin this all-Beethoven recital, followed by Sonata (opus 17) in F major and rounded off with his majestic Sonata no 3 in A major. Cantabrian pianist Jeremy Woodside plays his third recital in this "Anniversary Series", this time paired with Czechian neo-Cantabrian cellist Tomas Hurnik. The programme is dedicated to the "Cressy", the last of the Canterbury Association's "First Four Ships" to arrive at Lyttelton thus completing the safe transport of the first 800 immigrants from England. The Canterbury Association was founded and first met in London in early 1848 to plan a church settlement in New Zealand. Its President was the Archbishop of Canterbury. A son of slave-abolitionist William Wilberforce chaired the first meeting. Its membership in March 1848 consisted of 50 Aristocrats and Gentlemen, 48 of whom were graduates of either Oxford or Cambridge. What linked these men together was a reforming zeal, especially a serious interest in Colonial Reform. The instigator of the Canterbury Association was a young Irishman, John Robert Godley, who while studying "Greats" at Christ Church, Oxford, resided in the college's "Canterbury Quad".

At the inaugural meeting of the Canterbury Association on 27th March 1848, it was Godley who proposed that the settlement be called "Canterbury" and the principal town be called "Christchurch". His proposals were duly seconded and passed. In 1850, as Agent-General for the Canterbury Association, Godley in person founded Canterbury and Christchurch. The charitable trust named in his honour, the John Robert Godley Memorial Trust, owns Lansdowne Homestead & Gardens and is the promoter of the Anniversary Concerts.
