Holy Week Choral Music

While these are certainly NOT meant to be concerts per se, I'm posting for those choral colleagues who are not in their own services this week, and might be inspired and refreshed to know that there is some fine choral singing happening this week where some sacred gems are presented in their originally intended settting - not only at Grace Church, but in so many other places.
