Holy Week Musical Meditations: Organ Music of J.S. Bach

Add to My Calendar

Monday, April 10, 2017
7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Saint Thomas Church

Benjamin Sheen, Associate Organist at Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue

Bach dedicated the Orgelbüchlein “to the glory of God alone, and to my neighbor, that he may learn from it.” The collection, incomplete at the time of Bach’s death, explores a variety of techniques for elaborating chorale melodies. Although the chorales are only one or two pages in length, they are densely written and rife with symbolism and theological meaning.
