Recurring Event Event Series: Organ Recital Series

Holy Week Meditation by Christopher Keady (In-Person and Livestream)

April 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us in a darkened cathedral on Palm Sunday, as organist Christopher Keady, Interim Director of Music, presents a series of musical meditations on the Twelve Stations of the Cross by British composer Philip Moore. Moore, a prolific composer of intense and expressive choral and organ works, is retired Director of Music of York Minster, one of England’s finest music foundations. Moore’s meditations will be interspersed with prayers written by Eric Milner-White, sometime Dean of King’s College, Cambridge, who is credited with popularizing the famous Christmastide Service of Nine Lessons and Carols.

Our organ recital series features some of the finest organists playing one of America’s great organs. Grace Cathedral’s 7,466-pipe Aeolian-Skinner instrument, the Charles B. Alexander Memorial Organ (1934), is one of the first and finest American classic-style organs and is among the largest church organs in the West. Experiencing music in our gothic cathedral with its unique acoustics, soaring nave, and jewel-like stained glass windows is a feast for the ears, eyes, and soul.

Registration is encouraged but not required.
