Apr 17 Sacred Organ Work with Marc Rochester - Soaring, majestic, powerful

Soaring, majestic, powerful - these are the words so often used to describe the sound of music played on an organ. With roots that date back to the 3rd Century BC, the instrument has over time become inextricably linked with western sacred music. The largest pipe organ in Singapore is housed in the Esplanade Concert Hall - with 4470 pipes and 61 stops – and is built by the German organ builders Johannes Klais Orgelbau. Hear the pipes come alive and fill the hall with their magnificent sound as renown organist, Marc Rochester, performs a select repertoire of sacred organ works ranging from well loved hymns, to seminal organ works of Bach, Mendelssohn, and other celebrated composers who draw inspiration from faith.
