Miller Chapel, Princeton Theological Seminary
"Testaments in Scripture and Song": Organ Concert and Hymn Festival with Paul Westermeyer - 7:30pm
64 Mercer St
Princeton, NJ 08540
U.S.
609-921-8300 [map]
Price: admission is free

I am pleased to be the Joe R. Engle Organ Recitalist at the beautiful Fritts pipe organ built in 2000. July 22 is the day in 1750 that J.S. Bach received communion for the last time, at home, and he died six days later, on July 28. He knew that worship matters and he is one of our most perceptive teachers about the importance of Word, Sacrament, and song. I will be joined by Dr. Paul Westermeyer, providing commentary, and choir and congregation singing hymns, as we explore Bach's ClavierÜbung, Part III, a musical testament of faith developed over a lifetime of composing, teaching, and serving as a church and civic musician. From Bach's example we can find relevance and inspiration for our own faith journeys and for how we regard and plan worship.

Solo organ repertoire will include:

Prelude and Fugue ("St. Anne") in E-flat Major, BWV 552

Allein Gott in der Höh sei Ehr (All Glory Be to God on High), BWV 676

Diess sind die heil'gen zehn Gebot (These Are the Holy Ten Commandments), BWV 678 and 679

Wir glauben all' an einen Gott (We All Believe in One God), BWV 680

Christ, unser Herr, zum Jordan kam (Christ, Our Lord, Came to the Jordan), BWV 684

Aus tiefer Not schrei ich zu dir (Out of the Depths I cry to You), BWV 686

Jesus Christus, unser Heiland (Jesus Christ, our Savior), BWV 689

Duetto I, BWV 802
