Scott Turkington in Concert

This is very exciting. Scott Turkington will play a recital at Christ Church, Greenwich, Connecticut, this Friday the 14 of November, at 7:30pm. There is no charge! He will play:

Symphonie VI: i. Allegro - Widor
Herzlich tut mich verlangen - Brahms
Litanies (1937) - Alain
Sabbato Sancto: Introït - Tournemire
Organ Book (Ten Pieces): x. Pasticcio - Langlais
Triptyque: ii. Trio - Langlais
Première Symphonie: iv. Scherzo, vi. Final - Vierne

Turkington is of course a premier master of sacred music in the United States, and enjoys a worldwide reputation as a teacher and musician.

Incidentally, I've been meaning to mention this, his Gregorian Chant Master Class is now offered through GIA. This is an indispensable resource, complete with a CD.
