It is a lucky month for me with respect to my choral music. I’ve already posted about how Emmanuel Music will do a new motet this coming Sunday; but in addition, The Crossing, Philadelphia’s extraordinary choir devoted to the music of our time, will do my Spiralling Ecstatically at concerts in Philadelphia and New York in the days before Christmas. Donald Nally will conduct.
The Philadelphia performance will be Friday, December 21, at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Chestnut Hill at 8:00 pm. Go here for more information and to get tickets. I just learned today that the group will also do the piece when they perform at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York on December 23. This will take place in the Medieval Sculpture Hall in front of the Christmas Tree and 18th-century Neapolitan crèche at 6:30 pm. More information here. (The Crossing’s page about this concert has not yet been updated to include mention of my piece.)
Both Emmanuel and The Crossing are quite superb, and I am looking forward to some great performances.
