For music lovers only. As I noted in the photos posted below, Will is working hard on his organ pieces for the AGO regional competition coming up in March. At the end of February, he is also performing at St. John’s Cathedral in Milwaukee for their Wednesday Concert Series.
Here is a recording Will made of one of his competition pieces. It is a different kind of organ piece for him, but very powerful. The ending is really exciting. It is called Suite Medievale: Acclamations, by French Composer, Jean Langlais. It was written in 1947, just after the two World Wars, and the dissonance of the piece speaks to the dissonance of the times. At the end, Christ is triumphant in these Acclamations. Just as He always is.
