Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart called the organ the “King of instruments”. Most timeless of the keyboards, the pipe organ’s ancestors sounded in the deserts of North Africa as early as the third century before Christ walked the dusty trails of the Middle East.
The strength and power of the instrument, together with its amazingly varied expression and musical colour, attracted the best composers of pre-enlightenment Europe.
The St Mary’s Winter Organ Recital Series will feature Musical Director Curt Bergen and will continue to explore the vast repertoire for this noble instrument.
