Christopher Holman, organ Presenting Series

No Tickets Needed

Christopher Holman presents eight centuries of organ music from the Roman Catholic tradition, performed on the tremendous Murdy Family Organ in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart in broadly chronological order. From the earliest written keyboard music (Robertsbridge Codex, c. 1360) through British composer Caitlin Harrison's 2022 chorale prelude on the Dominican Order's Salve Regina, the program will feature music by J.S. Bach, Charles-Marie Widor, Dieterich Buxtehude, Sor María Clara de Oaxaca, Elisabeth Lutyens, works from the time of the American Revolution, and more, demonstrating how the organ, as Widor famously said, can truly bring about a "vision of eternity."

This event is free to attend and not ticketed.

Made possible by the Marjorie O'Malley Sacred Music Series.
