The lovely C. B. Fisk pipe organ at Lexington Presbyterian Church is the vehicle for a program of music featuring the distinctive but changing sounds of French organs over three centuries, including compositions of great organists from Rouen (Jacques Boyvin) and Reims (Nicolas de Grigny), and of several great Parisians (Louis Vierne, Jean Langlais, Maurice Durufle, and Olivier Messiaen).
