Andrew Scanlon performs on the recently restored 1914 Estey organ which has not been heard since 1978. Come here this "deluxe" model Estey. This instrument was designed by Mr. Bart Grady, House Manager for Keith's Theaters. Grady was in charge of music and orchestras and was fully aware of the requirements for a successful instrument and his marks are all over this opus. Estey, for its part needed a spectacular success, and in their words " You remember our experience of lack of power in the Gate of Heaven Church", "...and we very much want this organ a show organ". Well, this organ has power to spare along with some of the most delicate and delightful voices imaginable. Bart Grady also conducted The Archdiocesan Choral Society, was the Director of Music for the Somerville Public Schools, and was Organist at Saint Joseph for 56 years. SCANLON will perform works by Whitlock, Willan, Liszt, Gigout, Langlais and others.

A Requiem is a prayer for rest, traditionally for those who have died. The five movements of Dan Forrest’s Requiem for the Living, however, offer a new twist—a narrative just as much for the living, with all our struggles, as for the dead. Join us on Saturday, April 27, 2024 at 3:00pm and fill your soul with this transcendent music that speaks to all of us. The event includes a major organ solo piece by Mr. Houlihan. This event will be presented in person and by livestream. The St. John’s Adult Choir and Choir School with orchestra; Scott Lamlein, choirmaster; Christopher Houlihan, organist. A reception will follow this concert. The concert is free admission, suggested donation $20.
