Celebrating Great Organ Music by Nathan Laube

To celebrate the second anniversary of the rededication of the Cathedral's completed and fully realized Lively-Fulcher Great Organ, St. Matthew's in May 2021 presented a bouquet of five splendid newly-recorded organ pieces performed by Nathan Laube, our 2019 Great Organ Dedicatory Recitalist. Each day from May 17 through May 21, one piece premiered on the Cathedral’s YouTube channel. Each video contains a mini-lesson in music appreciation for that particular piece - lively and illuminating remarks by the artist. Enjoy these anytime!
