Celebrating the pipe organ, the King of Instruments
2001 C.B. Fisk at Saint James Episcopal, Richmond, VA
We’re traveling south this week to churches and chapels in Virginia, Florida and South Carolina to sample some recently installed instruments. We’ll visit Rollins College in Winter Park, where Randall Dyer and Associates have worked their magic on the 1936 Aeolian-Skinner. At Saint James Episcopal, Richmond, National Cathedral organist Eric Suter demonstrates Opus 112 from the Massachusetts shop of C.B. Fisk, a recent addition to an impressive list of contemporary tracker-action organs in town. And at First Presbyterian in Greenwood, Robert Glick shows off the new Goulding and Wood organ, both as soloist and composer.
The music tells the story, and the venues guarantee the pleasure of Southern Comfort.
