What's on Great Sacred Music, Sunday, October 14, 2012
Date: October 12, 2012
Location: North Carolina, USA
Choir type: Choirs with Religious Affiliation
A Dean I worked years ago for referred to the Te Deum Laudamus as
'tedious'. To be sure I have heard performances which did require much patience to listen to.
Fortunately that is not the case with the set of Te Deums which I have selected for you on this week's show.
Thanks for your support of Great Sacred Music.
BTW there's more choral music for you to enjoy on Sean Burton's show on KWIT, Sioux City, Iowa every Sunday morning from 10-11 Central Time.
