The tradition of organ music in Christian community chapels dates back to the middle ages but, as you’ll discover on our next Pipedreams program, it’s still a very lively tradition. We’ll hear four instruments, three of them newly installed, play music both historic and modern. Buxtehude and Pinkham at Mount Saint Joseph Convent in Kentucky, Reger at Saint Norbert’s Abbey in De Pere, Wisconsin, pieces by James Hopkins and Marius Walter premiered at Mount Angel Abbey in Oregon, and works by James Primosh, Libby Larsen, and Maurice Duruflé recorded at Saint Meinrad Archabbey in Indiana, star, as we sample new Sounds from Sacred Spaces.
We celebrate the related arts of composition and instrument building with a program of new music on new pipe organ installations featuring the artistry of Cherry Rhodes, Ladd Thomas, Douglas Reed, David Heller, and Douglas Cleveland. Let the spirits soar to Sounds from Sacred Spaces, this week on Pipedreams.
