Colin MacKnight, Organist
Music at Midday is proud to be presenting twice-weekly virtual concerts, today featuring organist Colin MacKnight performing at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City. We are grateful fo all of the musicians who have made this series possible.
As Christian prepare for the celebration of Pentecost this coming Sunday, this week’s program features an organ work based on the traditional Gregorian chant setting of “Veni Creator Spiritus” (Come, Creator Spirit), We hope that this music will help you to experience the power of the Spirit’s coming to “renew the face of the earth.”.
