Canonic Variations on Von Himmel Hoch

 

As part of his complete, year-long survey of Bach’s organ works, Greg Morris presents a programme of his finest seasonal music.  Opening with the virtuosic Toccata, Adagio & Fugue, the programme includes chorale preludes from the Orgelbüchlein, the delightful Pastorale, and one of Bach’s late masterpieces, the Canonic Variations on Von Himmel Hoch, da komm ich her.  Composed in 1747, the variations are an intricate and exceedingly beautiful musical play on one of the most important of Lutheran Christmas chorales.

 

This concert is FREE to attend, and is first come, first served.
