ORGAN DEDICATION CONCERT


St. Paul’s invites all of our parishioners, their families, and our friends to the formal Organ Dedication Concert as we celebrate the completion, not only of the new 51-rank three manual Schantz organ, but of the renovation of the church’s interior as well. Bishop Stephen Miller will preside over the blessing of the new space and the new organ, and our featured performer is Milwaukee’s own Michael Hey, a junior at the Juilliard School, and a favorite of St. Paul’s, having been featured player at our Christmas Lessons & Carols Service in January, and again as one of the eight featured organists for our February organ concert. Michael’s program includes:

J.S. Bach – Prelude & Fugue in G Major [BWV 541]

• Maurice Ravel – III. Passacaille (from the Piano Trio) transcribed for organ by Michael Hey

• Max Reger – Choral Fantasy on Hallelujah! Gott zu loben bleibe meine Seelenfreud! Op. 52, No. 3

• Olivier Messiaen – from L’Ascension:

II. Alleluias sereins d’une âme qui désire le ciel (Serene alleluias of a soul that longs for heaven)

III. Transports de joie d’une âme devant la gloire du Christ qui est la sienna (Ecstasies of a soul before the glory of Christ, which is its own glory)

• Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck – Variations on More Palatino

• Charles Ives – Variations on America (My Country, ‘Tis of Thee)
