The Cathedral of St. John the Divine will continue the 2013/14 Great Music in a Great Space concert series with a Great Organ: Great Artists performance by acclaimed organist Thomas Murray on Wednesday, October 30 at 7:30 pm at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street), Manhattan.

Professor Murray, esteemed American concert organist and recording artist particularly admired for his interpretations of Romantic music, will present a program featuring Josef Gabriel Rheinberger’s Sonata No. 3 in G Major, “The Pastoral”; Guy Weitz’ “Benedicamus Domino”; Edward Elgar’s “Larghetto,” from Serenade for Strings and “Carillon”; Marcel Dupré’s “Six Versets on the Magnificat” from Fifteen Antiphons; and Dan Locklair’s cycle “Glory and Peace,” which he premiered in 2009.

Murray’s recital is the second in a series of three Great Organ: Great Artists concerts. The other two installments include an October 16 performance by Kent Tritle, Director of Cathedral Music, as well as a recital by Associate Organist Raymond Nagem, which will take place on November 6. Great Music in a Great Space reintroduces the legendary concert series held at the Cathedral in the 1980s. The 2013/2014 season includes choral/orchestral concerts, organ recitals and the Cathedral’s signature holiday concerts with repertoire spanning from this Great Organ: Great Artists performance to Bach’s St. John Passion and more. In addition to the acclaimed Cathedral Choir and Cathedral Orchestra, concerts will feature soloists including singer/songwriter Judy Collins, Metropolitan Opera baritone John Michael Moore, and world-music specialist Nina Stern with instrumental ensemble Rose of the Compass.

Tickets start at $25. To purchase tickets or for information on future concerts please visit
