SAN FRANCISCO, October 7, 2015 – Organist Paul Jacobs and soprano Christine Brewer perform a recital of sacred organ and vocal repertoire at Davies Symphony Hall on Sunday, October 18 at 7:00 pm as part of the San Francisco Symphony’s Organ Series. The recital program is largely comprised of works from the pair’s newly-released recording, Divine Redeemer. Jacobs and Brewer will sign copies of the album at the Symphony Store in the Davies Symphony Hall lobby after the recital concludes. In addition to Davies Symphony Hall, the pair’s recital tour takes Jacobs and Brewer to Atlanta, St. Louis, and New York City.

Beginning with J.S.

Bach’s Prelude No. 1 in C major, BWV 846), Nadia Boulander’s Trois Pièces pour Orgue, and Lili Boulanger’s Pie Jesu. Also included are Puccini’s Salve Regina, Max Reger’s Toccata and Fugue, Opus 59, and three songs from a text by Hugo Wolf.
