This program celebrates the arrival of the Music Program's new continuo organ, which was handmade by the firm of Henk Klop in the Netherlands. This beautiful instrument provides a great foundation for our continued excellence in early music performance as a regular part of our program. It features singers and instrumentalists in both a cantata and motet by Bach as well as music from the 17th and 19th centuries.
