WACO, Texas (Sept. 9, 2016) – Baylor University Carillonneur Lynnette Geary will play a memorial recital on the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. This program, presented in memory of those who tragically perished that day, will be performed on the McLane Carillon in Pat Neff Hall Tower, beginning at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11.
The recital will begin with former University Carillonneur Herbert Colvin’s arrangement of the “Doxology,” followed by “In Memoriam—September 11, 2011” by John Courter, and then the Milford Myhre transcription of the anonymous “O Støre Gud” (“How Great Thou Art”).
Also to be heard are the traditional Irish melody “Slane” (“Be Thou My Vision”), as arranged by Sally Slade Warner, the Lloyd Lott setting of “Amazing Grace,” and an arrangement by Ronald Barnes of the Shaker hymn “More Love.”
Closing the program will be the John Courter setting of William Henry Monk’s “Abide with Me” and Roy Hamlin Johnson’s arrangement of the plainsong “In Paradisum.”
This memorial carillon recital is free and open to the public. Weather permitting, the public is invited to bring lawn chairs or blankets to Founders Mall in front of Pat Neff Hall. Printed programs will be distributed just prior to the performance. For more information, call the Baylor University School of Music at 254-710-3991.
