Please join us at National City Christian Church next Friday, November 13, at 12:15 p.m., for our free weekly Music at Midday concert. We are delighted to be welcoming organist Carol Feather Martin, who will present a program entitled, “Keepers of the Legacy: Music of the Organists of Notre Dame.” Remembering the beauty of music produced in that grand cathedral that now stands in ruins is an expression of hope in a time of anxiety and fear. The program for this Friday includes:
- Final from 1re Symphonie – Louis Vierne
- Fuga V from Six Fugues pour l”Orgue, Op. 6 – Jean-Jacques Beauvarlet-Charpentier
- Préludes XIV, XI, VII from 19 Préludes pour orgue – Jean-Pierre Leguay
- Scherzo symphonique – Pierre Cochereau, improv. transcribed by Jeremy Filsell
Carol Feather Martin, a native of North Carolina, graduated from Oberlin Conservatory with a BM in piano performance and MM degree in Organ Performance and Piano Chamber Music and Accompanying Performance from Catholic University. Carol is Director of Music and Arts and Organist at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Arlington, Virginia where she works with all ages of singers, handbell ringers and instrumentalists. Solo and chamber music recitals have taken Carol to many areas of the U.S. and also Canada and Germany.
