Or­gan recital on Nov. 18

Cape Breton Post - - ARTS / ENTERTAINMENT -

GLACE BAY — The or­gan at St. Ann’s Church will get a work­out when noted or­gan­ist Michael Mol­loy gives a recital there on Sun­day, Nov. 18 at 3 p.m.

“In my opin­ion, the or­gan at St. Ann’s Church is the finest in­stru­ment in Nova Sco­tia,” said Glace Bay or­gan­ist Jim McNeil. “It was built in 1985 by Ger­hard Brun­zema, who is a leg­endary or­gan builder — one of the best of the 20th cen­tury.”

The 22 stop St. Ann’s or­gan was built along 18th cen­tury prin­ci­ples that in­clude clas­si­cal voic­ing, low wind pres­sure and me­chan­i­cal ac­tion. McNeil knows Mol­loy and says he’s been study­ing and play­ing the or­gan for the last 40 or so years.

“He plays ex­tremely well.” Tick­ets are $20.
