Pipedreams Live! In Saint Paul #0020
This week on Pipedreams host Michael Barone gathers some friends together at House of Hope Presbyterian Church in Saint Paul for a concert in celebration of Pipedreams’ first compact disc release. It’s sort of a show-and-tell affair, with performances by Leonard Danek, Edward Berryman and Michael Ferguson in of some of their own works, one of which takes a Bachian-challenge to its triumphal conclusion. Monte Mason leads his splendid choirs, and Melanie Ninnemann teams up with Michael Barone for a sonorous organ duet. And Michael will even play a solo or two.
LEONARD DANEK: Festival Prelude; 3 Chorale-preludes: O come, O come, Emmanuel; Lead on, O king eternal; In dulci jubilo; Flowers; Finale, from 3 Meditations on the Gospel of Saint John –Leonard Danek,
The event took place at House of Hope Presbyterian Church in Saint Paul, MN, and featured the two exceptional sanctuary organs, a 1979 4-manual C.B. Fisk in the rear gallery and a 1878 2-manual Merklin organ in the chancel, recorded June 30, 1993
