Gordon Stewart ~ Organist Andrew Carter ~ Composer
The season of Christmas, so special in itself, has long held for me the extra joys of my birthday, falling shortly before the Feast, and our wedding anniversary, just after. This year, as Sylvia and I celebrate our ruby wedding and my seventieth birthday, Banks Music Publications has kindly brought together a dozen of my mixed voice carol titles.
Andrew Carter was 70 in December (2009), and it was lovely to know of performances of his music in this celebration year.
If your concert or special church service which included one of Andrew's pieces is not listed below do let us know. Please tell us also if any of your details are incorrect.
In April 2008 the renowned musicians of Saint Olaf College, Minnesota, devoted a whole concert to the music of Andrew Carter, in the presence of the composer. Excellently performed by Saint Olaf's choral and instrumental groups, and featuring some splendid soloists, the concert includes Petite Suite for Trumpet and Organ, two movements from the Organ Concerto, the cantatas 'Laudate Dominum' and 'Great is the Lord', together with shorter choral pieces.
