There has been a lacuna in postings here because of my travels and other consuming activities. But I wanted to post this invitation to singers professional or amateur who are in any way connected with, neighbors of, or just sympathetic with Columbia University to join us for singing the 5 p.m Sunday Masses in St. Paul’s Chapel during the University term. This Sunday is the opening Mass of the year, and rehearsal is in the chapel at 4 p.m. Very efficient, no? How else will you get to perform lovely music in superb acoustics and awe-inspiring visual surroundings after about fifty minutes of rehearsal? Let me know if you have any questions or want to let me know that you’re interested, and I’ll e-mail you PDFs of the music to be sung.

Holy Spirit Mass

Triduum Sacrum

April 7, 2012

Like many others, I’ve been completely consumed with doing music for the great liturgies of the Three Days. Pictured above, from this morning, is the third Tenebrae liturgy, at the Church of Notre Dame here in the city. Tonight comes the climax, with the Easter Vigil in the Holy Night.
