Glory to God Alone: Bach

by Derek E. Nickels, Director of Music

Johann Sebastian Bach wrote the words Soli Deo Gloria ("Glory to God Alone"), or initials, S.D.G at the conclusion of his sacred manuscripts. Bach's organ works have been widely revered as the greatest collection of pieces ever composed for a single instrument.  WFMT (98.7) will feature live performances of all Bach's organ works in one historic performance series of ten recitals that encompasses over 900 minutes of music beginning on Sunday, September 21st and concluding on Sunday, October 26th. These performances will be offered on some of the finest instruments across the Chicago area.  On Friday, October 24, 2014 at 7:30 p.m., members of the North Shore Chapter of the American Guild of Organists (including myself) will be performing at Alice Millar Chapel, 1870 Sheridan Road in Evanston.  The public is cordially invited.  More information may be found here...
