 1 - Gere HANCOCK
   • Praise the eternal light •
  • G. Hancock : 9 Improvisations on the cathedral windows
- Hartford Cathedral St-Joseph
- Disque Pro Organo;, sept. 2008 CD / DVD

137-rank, 4 manual Austin Organ (1962) at the Cathedral of St-Joseph in Hartford, Connecticut.

The result was a 68-minute program, a veritable organ symphony in 9 movements. Each movement is Dr. Hancock's musical interpretation of one set of three towering stained-glass windows that line the East and West walls of the sanctuary of the Cathedral of St. Joseph. In addition to 8 improvisation on the 8 sets of theme windows in the Cathedral nave, Dr. Hancock offers a ninth improvisation in response to the ”Christ the King” window that overlooks the organ pipes in the Cathedral's gallery.

There is a wide range of musical moods among the nine improvisations, and a variety of forms are used, including a free-form Toccata, a Scherzo, and a Prelude and Fugue. The multi-camera production allows us to observe up-close the manual and pedal techniques that have made Dr. Hancock's improvisations so legendary. Performance video is merged with stunning videography of the stained-glass windows by the 20th-century French master, Jean Barillet.
