Music for the Month
Church services and other events are suspended until further notice due to the uncertainty over the Coronavirus. However during the suspension of services, Robert Woolley, our Director of Music, will be recording a series of pieces based on choral preludes associated with Lent and Passiontide. The first in this series begins with with the Praeludium and Choral on Erbarm dich mein, O Herre Gott, by J.L.Krebs (1713-1780).
Choral variations by Buxtehude, Bohm, and Pachelbel will follow shortly.
