Organist David Durkop presented an organ recital at Grace Baptist Church in Durham, NC. Featuring the works of Bach, Clarke, Handel, Couperin, and Durkop, the recital was billed as a "Musical Worship Experience of Organ Music and Hymns" and included an Opening Prayer and reading of Psalm 149 before the recital and a Benediction by the Interim Pastor, Rev. John Monderen.
Unfortunately, I had to leave after the second piece since I had a service to play in Chapel Hill, and I needed at least half an hour to get there.
I'm glad there was a good turnout: there were at least 70 people by the time I had to leave 20 minutes into the recital.
Here is the program, including the pieces I didn't hear.
