    A nice organ

    Here's a link to a very nice organ I'll be playing on October 2, 2005. The organ is at Christ Episcopal church in New Brunswick, New Jersey (USA).

    Richards-Fowkes, New Brunswick

    It's a truly nice instrument, which is loosely based on Dutch Baroque design, but it's flexible enough to play a wide variety of repertoire. The program I'm playing is this:


    Toccata (Aeolian)-----Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck (1562-1621)

    Variations on "Unter der Linden gruene"----Sweelinck

    _Sonate d'Involatura. . ._----Domenico Zipoli (1688-1726)
    All'Elevazione (II, C major)
    All'Offertorio (C major)

    _Messe pour les Paroisses_----Francois Couperin (1668-1733)
    Gloria, 6e Couplet, Tierce en Taille
    Benedictus, Chromhorne en Taille
    Agnus Dei, 3e Couplet, Dialogue sur les Grands jeux

    "Vater unser im Himmelreich" Nr 12, 2--Georg Boehm (1661-1733)

    Toccata et Fuga(Dorian) BWV538--Johann Sebastian Bach(1685-1750)


    I don't know if anyone reading this is anywhere near New Jersey, but if you are, you'd be welcome to come! There is a Vespers service at 6pm, followed by the organ recital. The church's phone number is (732) 545-6262.

    PS on the program--I eliminated the Boehm from the program because of time constraints.

    I hope the concert went well! It looks like a great program (even without the Böhm piece), and indeed a nice and interesting organ. Quite "European" in character (from what I can read) if I may say so
