I love this Pie Jesu, by Duruffle.
This photo was taken after everything was done and right before I left. I realized I had left the lights on upstairs, and had to take another hike back up to the top.
But, this morning I played the Duruffle Pie Jesu on this organ, which is about three stories up and a block away from the string players and the soloist.
It’s the kind of challenge I thrive on. St. Mary’s Assumption is a beautiful church, by the way.
Lots of stairs were involved.
What is this way up at the top of the arches, high above the sanctuary? An all seeing eye looks over the Church… Makes one wonder, it does.
It was a beautiful, prayerful, and musical morning in the Church.
I followed up with a trip out to St. Louis Cemetery #3, and found the gravesite of Margaret Haughery.
But that’s another story, for another time…
