Leo Sowerby: Land of Rest
Robert Parris, organ
C. B. Fisk Organ
Christ Episcopal Church
Acclaimed organist Robert Parris presents a varied selection of works particularly suited to the new C. B. Fisk organ in Macon, Georgia. The program showcases the Fisk brand of eclecticism in a large two manual organ. The organ includes a range of historically derived sounds, which make the authentic performance of certain repertoire possible, but also allowing for a wide range of styles. At the center of the program is the American composer Leo Sowerby's seldom-recorded Prelude on "Land of Rest." Robert Parris was featured recitalist at Disney Hall during the 2004 AGO convention in Los Angeles.
