Holiday Music: Chapel Organist Christopher Jacobson on His Bach Organ Series

As part of Duke Chapel's 2016-17 music series, Chapel Organist Christopher Jacobson is performing a yearlong series titled J.S. Bach: Complete Organ Works. Jacobson says Bach's works are the organist's supreme challenge and the listener's supreme delight. They are the perfect marriage of humble purpose and high genius. In this series, each performance highlights musical and personal themes throughout Bach's life.

It's also great holiday music. Jacobson will continue the Bach organ series at 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 18, in Duke Chapel.

Above, Jacobson's discusses Bach's famous piece informally known as "The Wedge." The concert is free. For more information, read here.
