Brian Coggins, organ

Today, as part of Bach's Lunch at the Chapel of the Cross, Brian Coggins presented a masterful program featuring the works of Couperin, Buxtehude, Mendelssohn, Messiaen, and Langlais. It was very obvious he enjoyed performing these pieces, and it was a joy to listen to him.

Here is the program.

   Tierce en taille from the Gloria
