Performing Mary at the Cross

September 15, 2011

I am looking forward to my performance at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Ft. Worth on Thursday, September 15th at 7pm with the Texas Camerata.  We will be performing both sacred and secular vocal and instrumental music.  One of the pieces I will be singing is Harriet Beech Stowe‘s, Mary at the Cross, which I have never performed before.   As an added bonus, this piece was composed by Malcolm Archer, the head of the Bristol Cathedral in England.  Malcolm was head chorister at Bristol, former music director at St. Paul’s and now at Winchester.  He is also a great friend of mine.

If you are in Ft. Worth on Thursday, please be sure to stop by!!  The address for St. Patrick’s Cathedral is: 1206 Throckmorton Street
Fort Worth, Tx 76102.

Stabat Mater/Our Lady of Love and Sorrows

March 21, 2011

The fourth score for the Stabat Mater/Our Lady of Love and Sorrows project has just come through and it’s beautiful.  Malcolm Archer has very kindly written this piece for me, called “Mary at the Cross”.  The three previous scores are also fantastic, and I’m greatly appreciative for those contributions made by Gregory Spears for “Our Lady”,  Vincent Bouchot for “Stabat Mater”, and Jackson Hill for “El Duelo”.

Singing the Messiah at Bristol Cathedral

December 14, 2010

I thoroughly enjoyed singing the Messiah at Bristol Cathedral last week.  Here is a picture of me (pre-show) in the choir stalls, where I used to stand as head chorister.  Malcolm Archer, the choirmaster at that time, has just agreed to write a piece for my new CD project which focuses on music about Mary.
