What's on Great Sacred Music, Sunday, July 1, 2012

Location: North Carolina, USA
Choir type: Choirs with Religious Affiliation

This Sunday we'll get a head start on our Independence Day celebrations with anthems by American composers sung for us by some very fine American choirs. Since July 1 is Canada Day, we shall observe that occasion as well with music by Dr. Healey Willan. Have a safe and happy holiday wherever you may be.
