Neil Cockburn will perform a one-hour solo organ programme featuring the new continuo (chamber) organ, as well as the main Casavant organ at the Cathedral. The new continuo organ was specially built for the Cathedral by Bennett and Giuttari in Massachusetts, and was a gift from Cyril and Elizabeth Challice in memory of all of the musicians who have served at the Cathedral. Works to be performed on January 11 include J.S. Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in A minor, BWV 543, and César Franck’s Choral 3 in A minor.
All concerts begin at 5.45pm and will last approximately one hour, allowing you to go to another evening event afterwards. General admission is $10 (cash only), payable at the door. Programme details are posted on the Cathedral Web site:
