What's on Great Sacred Music, Sunday, June 16, 2013
Date: June 15, 2013
Location: North Carolina, USA
Choir type: Choirs with Religious Affiliation
Music for parish choirs this week. Don't forget that you can hear more beautiful sacred
and organ music on Peaceful Reflections from 10 until midnight on Sunday evenings.
The format which I created and used for the eight years I was host of Peaceful Reflections
is back. It's a mix of instrumental and choral music designed for Sunday evening listening.
Hope you like it.
Thanks for your support. And happy Fathers' Day!
