Friends of the Stone Church: Dulcet Tones, Regal Splendor
Sunday, October 27, 2019 at 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Malcolm Halliday, Organ with Jonathan Clark, Flügelhorn
Organist Malcolm Halliday presents music from both Europe and the new world, showcasing the beautiful sounds of the 1874 Johnson and Son organ of the Stone Church of Gilbertville. Works include Mendelssohn’s majestic fourth organ sonata, Boëllmann’s dramatic Suite gothíque and several transcriptions created near the time the organ was built. Also on the program are three works of the Mexican organist and composer Ramón Noble as well several selections with flügelhorn, played by Jonathan Clark. A sweeter more mellow sounding cousin of the trumpet, this mellifluous brass instrument matches beautifully the dulcet tones of the majestic Stone Church organ.
