The Organ Inauguration Continues! On Tuesday, November 15 at 8pm, Jon Gillock will perform one of the greatest works ever composed for organ, Messiaen’s Meditations on the Mystery of the Holy Trinity. This epic work takes the listener through an amazing journey of immense power and drama, but also mystery, tenderness, and profound spirituality. It is one of the pillars of late Twentieth-Century music and one of Messiaen’s most amazing masterpieces. To hear this work on this French organ with all the timbres Messiaen called for is a unique experience. Don’t miss this very special occasion. For tickets go to the Voices of Ascension website or call 212-358-7060.
