Organ Sunday, January 19

Organ Sunday, January 19

My choices for service music include personal favorites–two based on Psalm 23 and another composed by a friend of my grandfather.

The Prelude is a setting of the hymntune Consolation by American organist/composer, Gilbert Martin, from a collection of pieces by graduates and faculty of Westminster Choir College.

The Offertory comes from British organist, Quentin Thomas, and uses a different hymntune for the Psalm, Crimond.

The Postlude is a portion of the final movement of Seth Bingham’s Baroques suite. Dr. Bingham was a friend of my grandfather back in the pre-World War II era.

I hope you enjoy these selections. They are favorites of mine. See you Sunday!
