Music of the Regal and Profound at Christ Church Cathedral 

Kingly and Weighty

Kingly and Weighty
Why did the National Guild of Organists pick Nashville for its 2012 National Convention? A much-lauded new organ at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center may be one reason, but the snazzy six-year-old instrument at Christ Church Cathedral is probably another—Choir and Organ Magazine has already mentioned hearing “fine reports” about it. Jon Johnson, assistant organist and choirmaster at Christ Church, will put the organ's 3,000-some-odd pipes through their paces in his “Music of the Regal and Profound” concert. The wide-ranging program features works by French Romantics including César Franck, as well as music of three 20th century composers and of Dieterich Buxtehude, the German-Danish organist who influenced J.S. Bach and others. Johnson has won several organ competitions and has performed across the U.S. as well as at Canterbury Cathedral in England and at Göteborg in Sweden. The free concert is part of the “Sacred Space for the City” series. Admission is free.
Sun., Jan. 17, 4 p.m., 2010
