Peggy Haas Howell

Peggy Haas Howell, organist, will be joined by Cantate Children’s and Youth Choir of Central Virginia in a program of organ works by Johann Sebastian Bach and Georg Böhm.  In the Böhm, Cantate will sing stanzas of  the choral Freu dich sehr in alternation with organ verses. Ms. Howell will play several chorale-preludes from Bach’s Orgelbüchlein; Cantate will follow by singing the chorales.  The French 20th-century blind organist and composer, Jean Langlais, composed the beautiful but little-known Messe d’Escalquens for treble choir in 1936.  Cantate will sing the mass, which has organ accompaniment, and Ms. Howell will also play several movements from Langlais’ 24 Pièces pour orgue ou harmonium.  Following the lyrical organ work, Aria by Andrew Carter, contemporary English composer, Cantate will end the program with Carter’s Bless the Lord:  Badgers and Hedgehogs, Butterflies and Moths, Grannies and Grandads.

St. Mark’s Episcopal Church
St. Mark's is a small but beautiful "farm church" sanctuary dating from the 19th Century. “When we sponsored performances of the Heinrich Biber Mystery Sonatas with St. Mark’s . . , we were reminded how glorious the sound can be there for chamber ensembles” said Lynn Kable, AGAR’s President.

Meet the Artists:
The Women of St. Mark’s Church will host a supper and reception for audience members to meet the artists after the concert. The dinner will be held in the parish hall of the church; a voluntary donation will be collected for Amherst Cares, a program for food-insecure children.
