Stephen Buzard in concert at Church of the Advent in Boston.  The concert will begin at 8 pm on Friday, April 6th.   On Saturday, April 7th,   Mr. Buzard will lead a master class at the Advent, beginning at 10 am.  The masterclass will last one hour and include information on accompanying the English anthem as well as a general masterclass.

Stephen Buzard is the Director of Music at historic St. James Cathedral in Chicago.  As organist and choirmaster, Mr. Buzard provides music for all parish and diocesan services and directs the  Cathedral Choir. HIs predecessors at St. James include Leo Sowerby, Dudley Buck, Clerence Dickinson, and Peter Lutkin.

Following this tragedy, Mr. Buzard became the Acting Organist and Director of Music, directing the prestigious choir of men and boys in their rigorous routine of daily services.

The AGO Organ Library, housed in the School of Theology at Boston University, has lots of used organ music for sale at relatively inexpensive prices. At the moment our supply is large, and we are offering discounts on Bach Scores, especially if you are a student. The Library is physically open only on Sunday afternoons, but it’s much easier (for you and for us) if you shop online anyway, so visit our website and click on “Music Sales” in the menu along the right side of the picture. There are various categories to look in (individual composers; collections; method books; books about organ music.) Then send us an email with your order (don’t try to call on the phone); We’ll email you back with the total and the shipping cost. We’re not fast (our staff is very tiny, often only 1 person) but we are cheap, very knowledgeable about the repertoire, and only charge necessary shipping costs. Our email is orglib@bu.edu.

Happy music hunting,
Carl Klein, DMA
