On Friday, October 12, at 7:00 p.m. in the sanctuary, St. James’s Church, in celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Installation of C.B. Fisk, Opus 112 presents a recital by Dr. Jeremy Thompson, Organist of First Presbyterian Church in Charlottesville, Virginia. Music by J. S. Bach, César Franck, Herbert Howells and Karl Höller.
On All Saint’s Day in 1998, we debuted our newly-installed C.B. Fisk pipe organ when Virginia Whitmire accompanied the Parish Choir in a service that included Maurice Duruflé‘s exquisite Requiem. We were instantly amazed by the breathtakingly beautiful and stirring sounds of our new organ. The following year we filled the church for the Dedicatory Recital presented by Olivier Latry, organist of Notre Dame, Paris.
We all realize how blessed we are to hear C.B. Fisk Opus 112 every Sunday. Our organ makes our worship come alive! It plays hymns and anthems beautifully. But that’s not all! To really understand and appreciate how blessed we are you MUST hear the organ in recital! Only then do you understand why the pipe organ is called the “King of Instruments.”
C.B. Fisk is generally considered to be one of the best (if not the best) organ builders in the world. Fisk organs are found in cathedrals, churches, universities and concert halls throughout the world. And we have one of the finest of the 153 organs built by Fisk.
