Adam Detzner, Christ Church’s Director of Music, presents an organ recital livestream at 5 p.m. this Sunday, and you can watch it on our Facebook page and on our church web site. The program is titled “My Soul Proclaims the Greatness of the Lord” and features organ settings of the Magnificat by Southern German Baroque composers (Kindermann and Pachelbel) and Northern German Baroque composers (Scheidemann and J.S. Bach). The recital will conclude with a favorite hymn paraphrase of the Magnificat – “Tell out my soul, the greatness of the Lord.”
The music for the hymn is included in the program notes (available here), and will also include some interesting historical commentary about the music. During the second half of 2020, Adam will offer a virtual organ recital on the first Sunday of each month, so mark your calendars!
