Two movements from Dan Locklair’s Rubrics – The Peace may be exchanged and The people respond: Amen for solo organ will be performed by Jonathan Dimmock as part of his All The Stops! program of contemporary organ music on Tuesday, February 11 at 8pm at the First Congregational Church of Berkeley, 2345 Channing Way in Berkeley, California.
Rubrics (A Liturgical Suite for Organ) was a 1988 commission from the Organ Artists Series of Pittsburgh, PA, for their tenth anniversary year celebration. The extra-musical impetus and subsequent titles for each movement of Rubrics are found in the instructions (rubrics) to the services for The Book of Common Prayer (September 1979 edition). The piece was given its World Premiere in Pittsburgh in April 1989 by organist Mary Preston. More about it at http://www.locklair.com/wp/compositions/organ/rubrics-a-liturgical-suite-for-organ.
