What's On Great Sacred Music, Sunday, February 19, 2012

Location: North Carolina, USA
Choir type: Choirs with Religious Affiliation
Hour 1 concludes with a composition from the Jewish liturgy. I was organist at Temple Sinai in Bay Shore, New York eons ago. George Rochberg's piece brings back some happy memories of accompanying a young cantor who always sang a mix of traditional and 'hot off the press' music. The Allegri mass in Hour 2 is full of emotion. Same composer who wrote that incredible setting of Psalm 51 - Miserere Mei - the one with those floating high C's. Hour 3 is given over to a portion of a 2 CD set Paul McCreesh and the Gabriel Consort and Players put out in 2002 called Music for the Duke of Lerma.
