#0126: Serene Alleluias!

It’s all about praise, joy and thanksgiving. Our next Pipedreams program provides music to gladden the heart and lift the spirits. We’ll have a celebratory Prelude by Franz Schmidt, a composer hailed in his native Austria, and almost totally unknown elsewhere. Max Reger contributes a tumultuous chorale-fantasy, Vincent Youmans provides some popular songs, Pierre Cochereau takes us to an Easter morning service at Notre Dame Cathedral, and the choir of Ascension Episcopal Church in Stillwater, Minnesota offers up a cheerful shout. Stimulate the senses and sooth the soul, with Serene Alleluias, this week on Pipedreams.

#0241: Debuts and Dedications

Bold and beautiful sounds from recently inaugurated American-built instruments will engage our ears on this week’s show. Robert Bates plays at Holy Rosary Church in Portland, and John Obetz visits with the Benedictines at Conception Abbey in Missouri. You’ll also hear instruments at West Market Street Methodist in Greensboro, North Carolina, Northridge Presbyterian in Dallas, Texas, and the Community Church in Glenview, Illinois. We’re on the road again with a cross-country sampler of recent American-built instruments, proving that this time-honored art is alive and well as practiced in our United States. Enter into the festivities and concert performances in a series of Debuts and Dedications.
