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.

In your mercy bring a swift end to this crisis.  Please pro­tect with your lov­ing care those we love — our fam­il­ies, friends and neigh­bours.  Let your fath­erly hand guide, shel­ter and strengthen them.  Cast out all anxious fears and doubts.  Give us an increas­ing trust in you and fill our hearts and minds with your peace.  We pray for those around the world now strug­gling with COVID-19.  Heal and com­fort those who are sick and suf­fer­ing.  Pro­tect and guide the health pro­fes­sion­als who are at the front line.  Please give wis­dom and cour­age to those who bear respons­ib­il­ity for con­front­ing this chal­lenge. We ask these things through the power­ful name of Jesus.  Amen.
