Featuring works by Bach, Mendelssohn & Sowerby
AUGUST 4 & 5, 2018– Organists at the Church of the Transfiguration offer a Transfiguration organ concert featuring works by Bach, Sowerby and Mendelssohn, performed on the “overwhelmingly breathtaking” E.M. Skinner Organ.
This powerful instrument, restored by Nelson Barden of Boston, is comprised of eighteen different E.M. Skinner organs, and is singularly unique with its surround-sound configuration. Recent expansions of the organ now allow new sounds and colors to be heard from both the South Great and Echo divisions of the instrument. Consistent with the artwork in the Church, the rich variety of sounds and voices the organ can create give it the ability to “speak” a multitude of musical languages in prayer and praise to God. The concert will be performed by Dr. David Chalmers and Dr. James Jordan, organists at the Church of the Transfiguration.
“The E.M. Skinner organ at the Church of the Transfiguration is a masterpiece of balance of harmonics, voicing, scale and color that is just overwhelmingly breathtaking.”—Organ Historical Society
