Grand Dialogue in C — Louis Marchand (1669 - 1732)

Partita on "Sei Gegrüsset Jesu Gütig — J.S. Bach (1685 - 1750)

Toccata in G — Theodore Dubois (1837 - 1924)

Chorale No.2 in B min — César Franck (1822 - 1890)

Pastoral & Final from 1st Organ Sonata — Alexandre Guilmant (1837 - 1911)

The most outstanding recent development in Ascension’s
musical life has been the building, installation, and inauguration of the Manton Memorial Organ. Designed specifically for Ascension and built by one of the world’s finest artisans, Pascal Quoirin of St. Didier, France, the new organ made its debut in late 2010 following an extensive renovation of the church interior and a long, careful installation process. With two consoles, one electric-action and one mechanical-action (“tracker”), 95 stops, and 111 ranks, the organ is tailor-made to perform the eclectic repertory favored at Ascension. It is the first French-made organ ever installed in New York City and was made possible by a generous grant from The Manton Foundation.
