These pictures taken by Elizabeth Richardson at Emmanuel Church last weekend came out so nicely I had to share them with you in a new post. I’m shown with Emmanuel Music Director Ryan Turner and Emmanuel Church Rector Pamela Werntz. Thanks to Elizabeth and to the beloved community of Emmanuel Church.
The Boston Musical Intelligencer has a pair of interviews with John Harbison – in his capacity as acting music director at Emmanuel Church – and the Rev. Pamela Werntz, who is to be installed as the new rector at Emmanuel this Sunday. As I wrote about earlier, my motet Spiraling Ecstatically will be done at both the morning prayer service and the installation service/Eucharist in the afternoon. Spiraling sets a poem of E. E. Cummings, and is a revision of a piece I wrote for the choir of the Catholic Campus Ministry during my student days in the Columbia University doctoral composition program.
