    The Tampa Chapter of the American Guild of Organists is offering a free lunchtime organ recital series during Lent.

    Location:  Hyde Park United Methodist Church, 500 W. Platt Street,
    Dates:      Wednesdays at 12:15 during Lent

    Edwin Taylor (Tampa Oratorio Singers tenor) is playing the final compositions of Johann Sebastian Bach and Johannes Brahms during the March 6 concert in this series.  

    In 1750, Bach, lying on his deathbed, dictated a farewell chorale prelude one note at a time, based on the beloved German chorale "Vor deinen thron tret' ich" (To Thy Throne I Now Appear). Brahms composed his farewell in 1897, a chorale prelude based on the 1493 German chorale "O Welt, ich muss dich lassen" (O World, I Now Must Leave Thee).
