Episode No. 28: Blessing of the Restored Hazel Wright Organ
In this episode of Sounds from the Sanctuary, host David Ball (Cathedral Organist and Music Ministry Director) visits with Dr. Emma Whitten (Associate Organist @ Christ Cathedral) and Kevin Cartwright (Curator for the Hazel Wright Organ). They talk about an evening for the ages that took place in late June inside Christ Cathedral. It was the official blessing of the restored Hazel Wright Organ. In fact, Pope Francis himself issued a special ‘Papal Blessing” in the form of a note to Bishop Kevin Vann. It was read aloud to all in the congregation that evening.
The balance of the show will feature some words and organ playing of one Josep Sole Coll. Josep is the Principal Organist of the Papal Basilica of St. Peter’s in the Vatican and Organist for Liturgical Celebrations of the Supreme Pontiff.
