Duke Chapel Organist Christopher Jacobson, FRCO, will present an online recital titled "J. S. Bach’s Great Eighteen Organ Chorales" on the Chapel's Flentrop organ on Sunday, November 8, at 4:00 p.m. EST. Prepared by J. S. Bach in Leipzig during his final decade (1740-1750), this collection of chorale preludes is an encyclopedia of large-scale works in various styles that Bach perfected throughout his career. Together with the Schübler Chorales, the Orgelbüchlein, and the third book of the Clavierübung, the Leipzig chorales represent the pinnacle of Bach's sacred music for solo organ.
