Tacoma AGO member David Dahl has another new publication! The Sacred Music Press has just released David’s new work “Partita on Old 124th.” This work was commissioned for the 40th anniversary of John Brombaugh’s Opus 9, and consists of a harmonization of Old 124th followed by ten variations, beginning with a canonic setting and ending with a harmonization intended for congregational singing with a descant.
On June 24, member Mark Brombaugh performed the world premier of Old 124th at Central Lutheran Church, Eugene, OR, the home of John Brombaugh and Associates Opus 19. The recital was jointly sponsored by the church, as part of the 40th anniversary celebration of the organ, in conjunction with the Oregon Bach Festival. Several hundred people attended and responded enthusiastically. Mark will premier this piece in Tacoma on Friday, September 30 at Christ Episcopal Church.
The printed edition can be purchased from The Sacred Music Press. On the same order page, there is a recording of this work played by Mark Brombaugh on Opus 9 freely available for listening.
