The organ is often called the king of instruments for good reason – no other instrument has such a high capacity for dynamic and tone color explorations. This program showcases a development from the profound Couvent Mass by Couperin, passing through Böhm’s and Buxtehude’s prelude settings and an original work by Joshua van Konkelenberg, culminating with the legendary organ master J.S. Bach and his St. Anne Prelude and Fugue.
