    The Cathedral of St. John the Divine continues its 2015–2016 season of the Great Music in a Great Space concert series with a Great Organ performance by Kent Tritle, Director of Cathedral Music, celebrating the works of Daniel Pinkham, Dietrich Buxtehude, César Franck, Charles-Marie Widor, Maurice Duruflé, Nicolas de Grigny, and Johann Sebastian Bach, on Wednesday, November 18th at 7:30 pm at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street), Manhattan.

    Tritle, in his fifth season as Director of Cathedral Music, presents a dazzling program centering on a trio of French works: Maurice Duruflé’s heartfelt tribute to his friend Jehan Alain, César Franck’s serene Cantabile, and a selection from Charles-Marie Widor’s Symphony No. 6.

    The Great Organ, built in 1911 by Earnest M. Skinner, and enlarged and rebuilt in 1954 by G. Donald Harrison of The Aeolian Skinner Organ Company, brings together in one instrument the very best from two of America’s foremost organ-builders. Great Organ: A Recital Series is part of the series comprising Great Music in a Great Space, which brings world-class musicians each season to fill the reverberating spaces of the Cathedral with sound.

    Re-launched in 2011, Great Music in a Great Space features significant choral masterworks presented in various acoustical locations within the world’s largest cathedral built in the gothic style. Great Music in a Great Space concerts feature the Cathedral Choirs and Orchestra, the Great Organ, and world-renowned soloists, and include the Cathedral’s signature Christmas Concert and New Year’s Eve Concert for Peace.
