The text below was the original information for the historic organ
recital where Judith Fellowes-Gordon played to the descendents of John David Gordon,
attended by over 150 people.
There were no photographs or
recordings made of this event save in the memory of those people from Spain, Huntly and
beyond who were lucky to be at a wonderful musical experience.

Judith Ann Fellowes-Gordon
I was born in Scotland in 1940 to an English diplomat father and Scottish mother. My
education at St Leonards School, St Andrews, Fife led me to join the Foreign Office
and work abroad.
In 1978 I married the late Ian Douglas Fellowes-Gordon, 18th Laird of
Knockespoch, Clan, Aberdeenshire. Ian was a BBC
journalist and writer of various books. We had a son, Ian, now aged 20. The Gordons of
Knockespoch have lived there since 1392, although we sold the house and estate in 1989. My
son and I now live just four miles in Kennethmont.
I am the organist of Rhynie Church, in the Parish of Noth. Two years ago I began
organ lessons at Aberdeen University with Dr David Smith, an Oxford scholar and musician
