Sayjin Park, Martina Smyth and Derek Verso, all senior students at the Academy, performed a number of beautiful pieces for the audience, demonstrating both their own musical gifts as well as showing off the capabilities of the Chapel’s organ! 

The pieces performed by Sayjin, Martina and Derek included Bach’s ‘Gigue Fugue’, and ‘Wachet Auf’; Buxtehude’s ‘Ciacona in E Minor’ and ‘Prelude in C’; Stanford’s ‘Prelude in G Minor’; and ‘Carillon’ by Vierne.

Mary Reynolds rsm, Executive Director of Mercy International Association, welcomed the three performers and their teachers, David Adams and Simon Stroughair, to the chapel at Baggot Street and thanked the musicians for sharing their talents and making such great use of the Telford organ.
