3:00 pm – 4:30 pm, Saint Thomas Church
Daniel Hyde plays the second of six Grand Organ recitals on the Miller-Scott Organ. Arguably the most distinctive and progressive voice in twentieth century French music, and certainly the most significant organist-composer of any nationality since Bach, Olivier Messiaen is best known for his cycle of nine pieces entitled La Nativité du Seigneur. Written in 1935, the music speaks directly of the joy, peace and wonder of Christmas. Why not take a break from your Christmas shopping and slip into this synesthetic world of color and sound, showcasing some of the most hidden and delicate sounds of the Miller-Scott Organ?
