Join us at St. Boniface for special screening of legendary director Cecil B. DeMille's silent epic The King of Kings with live organ improvisation by David Briggs (Artist in Residence, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, New York) on Palm Sunday 24th March 2024 at 7:30 PM. This event is a special free-will offering from the friends of music, no ticket is required to attend.
Cecil B. DeMille (1881-1959) was one of the early 20th century's most successful filmmakers. He directed hundreds of silent shorts before reaching the apex of his popularity in the 1920s with such films as Don't Change Your Husband (1919), The Ten Commandments (1923), and The King of Kings (1927). The King of Kings is a particularly apropos film for the Lenten season: the second in DeMille's Biblical trilogy, the plot follows Christ, Mary Magdalen, and the Apostles through the miraculous events leading to the Crucifixion and Resurrection.
David Briggs, appointed Artist in Residence at the Cathedral of St John the Divine in October 2017, is acknowledged as one of the finest organists of his generation and is among the most prominent exponents of the art of improvisation. Having previously accompanied such classic silent films as Lang's Metropolis and Hitchcock's The Lodger, his legendary skill has delighted audiences the world over and inspired a rising generation of future organists.
