Vision tells the story of Hildegard von Bingen, the 12th century Benedictine nun, Christian mystic and composer, venerated in the Catholic and Anglican Communions. She was a Doctor of the Church who was able to transmit her visions to the world. According to Wikipedia, Pope John Paul II called her “a light to her people and for her time” and said “she continues to shine even more brightly today.”
|WORDSWORTH & MASKELL PIPE ORGAN RECITAL
Sunday, 5 September 2021 at 3pm
Keep and broadcast the date!
Well-known to Sydney audiences, St Luke’s is delighted to welcome Heather Moen-Boyd to perform an inaugural recital on the Church’s unique 1883 Wordsworth & Maskell Pipe Organ.
From Mozart to Mendelssohn, whose works were performed at the instrument’s 1884 recital, the performance will also include Samuel Barber’s Adagio to mark Yom Kippur and September 11, and pastoral birdsong to herald the coming Spring.
The heritage-listed organ, considered powerful for its size, is a unique example of its kind in Australia. This is its inaugural recital, delayed by more than a year due to the pandemic, following the complete restoration of the instrument to its original high Victorian glory.
RSVP: to Kathy Drummond or Brett Davies and watch this space for arrangements due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Entry: $15 ($10 all concessions), including programme note.
Lea MacNeil has jam, conserves, pickles and various sauces to sell; please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to order them from her. Donald, her husband can deliver your specific order to the Opshop where it can be paid for. All proceeds go to St Luke’s Parish.
