September 4, 2014
Baylor University Carillonneur Lynnette Geary will play a memorial recital on the thirteenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 2001. This program, presented in memory of those who perished in the assaults, will be performed on the McLane Carillon in Pat Neff Hall Tower, beginning at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 11.
The recital will begin with former University Carillonneur Herbert Colvin’s arrangement of the “Doxology,” followed by the “Prelude” from “Prelude and Fugue for Carillon” by Albert Gerken and then the Roy Hamlin Johnson arrangement of a Benedictine plainsong, “Adoro Devote.”
Also to be heard are “In Memoriam—September 11, 2011” by John Courter, the Roy Hamlin Johnson transcription of William Croft’s “Saint Anne,” and the Herbert Colvin setting of “Amazing Grace.”
An arrangement by Ronald Barnes of the Shaker hymn “More Love” will be followed by John Courter’s “Sarabande for 26 Bells.”
Closing the program will be an arrangement by John Courter of William Henry Monk’s “Abide with Me” and Roy Hamlin Johnson’s arrangement of the plainsong “In Paradisum.”
This memorial carillon recital by Lynnette Geary is free of charge 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.
