SPRINGFIELD, Ohio — Trudy Faber, professor and chair of the department of music at Wittenberg University, will continue a long standing tradition when she presents her 37th annual organ recital at 4 p.m., Sunday, March 28, in Weaver Chapel. The program is free and open to the public.
The majestic Grand Chorus Dialogue by Gigout will open the program, and Faber will continue with a set of variations on Psalm 100, or the Doxology ("Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow"). The program will also include a choral prelude by Bach, followed by three pieces by female composers.
In recognition of Lent, Faber will play three of the 14 Stations of the Cross by Marcel Dupré: Jesus is Nailed to the Cross, Jesus Dies on the Cross and Jesus is Buried in the Tomb. A reading by J. Arthur Faber, professor of English, will precede each of the Stations of the Cross selections.
The hour-long recital will conclude with Transports of Joy from the Ascension Suite by Olivier Messiaen.
For more information, call the music department at (937) 327-7341.
