Orgelafton

St. Görans kyrka, Stockholm

January 23rd, 2022 6:00pm

What a wonderful gig to break the current Corona hiatus! Church organist Gabriella Sjöström invited me to do a joint concert with both church organ and Hammond. St Göran’s church has a wonderful acoustic and I decided to bring the big guns, that is, my B3 with two leslies. They both looked and sounded great in the room!

The concert was divided into three parts, like this:

Part I Gospel

  • Amazing grace (church organ)
  • Amazing grace (Hammond)
  • It is well with my soul (Hammond)
  • Just a closer walk with thee (Hammmond)
  • Precious lord, take my hand (Hammond)
  • Go, tell it on the mountain (Church organ)

Part II Bach

  • Preludium B-dur BWV 560 – The Preacher – Jazzbacillen (Hammond)
  • J S Bach Einige canonische Veränderungen über das Weihnachtslied
  • Vom Himmel hoch, da komm ich her (SvPS 125) BWV 769 (Church organ)
    1. Kanon i oktav
    2. Kanon i kvint
    3. Kanon i septima
    4. Kanon i förstoring
    5. Omvänd kanon i sext, ters, sekund och nona
  • Infogade improvisationer över SvPs 125 (Hammond)

Part III Schubert & Mendelsohn

  • Ave Maria (Hammond)
  • Lyss till änglasångens ord/Hark! The Herald Angel Sing (SvPs 123) (Church organ)
  • Greensleeves/What Child Is This (2 church organs)

Mostly we would alternate playing pieces on our respective instruments, but the last song “Greensleeves” was actually a Jimmy Smith jazz arrangement played on two church organs. Probably a first for that!
