Organist Rhonda Sider Edgington’s report from Deutschland was full of positive news, including her usual run-down of incredible old instruments she had the pleasure of performing on (if only blogging were the same way — just imagine I’m writing this post from a mint condition Apple IIc).

Throughout her tour, she performed on five different organs, from the Verden Cathedral’s original German Romantic instrument from 1916 to the enormous 90-stop symphonic one in the Magdeburg Cathedral.  A stop at her old hometown in Bremen afforded a chance to see a brand new mechanical action organ finished this year by Ahrend Organs.  She also performed concerts in Berlin and Worpswede!

Now back in the U.S., Edgington is preparing for a performance this Sunday as part of Loyola University’s  Summer Celebrity Series. Her extensive program will include Bach’s Fugue in G Major (BWC 577), Buxtehude’s Praeludium in C Major (BuxWV 136), Messiaen’s Joie et Clarte des corps glorieux, Bernard Wayne Sanders’s Eclogue and Fugue in D Minor, and much more.

That’s on the 53-stop Goulding and Wood in Loyola’s Madonna della Strada Chapel.  This Sunday at 3pm!
