change of plan… there is a severe shortage of choir members here this week for All Souls tomorrow, and so the four-part In Paradisum has had to be postponed for a later date. Instead, comes a brand new premiere – my Missa Simpla Defunctorum, written specifically for the occasion! Premiering at St Mark’s English Church, Florence, at Solemn High Mass on All Souls’ Day (November 2), 7:00pm.
SO a week ago today I arrived in Florence to begin my year’s tenure as the choirmaster of St Mark’s English Church in Florence. On All Souls at Evening High Mass, the choir here, directed by me, will premiere my In Paradisum during the service. It shall be jolly exciting, I do say!
