Prelude

Prelude and Fugue in G minor                                                  J. S. Bach

Offertory

Andante                                                                                    Benjamin Carr

Postlude

Concluding Voluntary in B Flat                                              Anonymous

 

Johanna Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), although known today as one of the most talented composers of all time, was known in his time primarily as an organist. Among his 250 compositions for the organ are a set of eight “little” preludes and fugues, probably written as pieces for students.

 

Benjamin Carr (1769-1831) was born in London and came to Philadelphia. He composed songs (such as the patriotic song “Hail! Columbia!”) and was organist/choirmaster at St. Augustine’s Catholic Church and St. Peter’s Episcopal Church.

 

In 1856, a collection titled “American Church Organ Voluntaries” was

published by A. N. Johnson and Stephen Cutler (organist/choirmaster of Boston’s Church of the Advent). One of them may have been the composer of “Concluding Voluntary.”

 

YOUTH CONFIRMATION

Now is the time for all 5th and 6th graders to be confirmed.  Parents, if your child has not been confirmed,  Call Dss. Tina.  Classes will be on Wednesday nights beginning September 12th,  following the 6 pm Eucharist & Dinner.
