Delighted to report that soprano Sarah Shafer will sing my Poems of Gerard Manley Hopkins January 31st, 2014, at 7:30 pm, on the concert series presented by Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia. The concert is called “Voice & Verse,” and will feature settings of English poems by Donne, Milton, Herbert, Rossetti, and others. Tenth’s music director and producer of these concerts, Paul Jones, accompanies.

The concert will be available live online, also.

I was very fond of these songs when I wrote them, and don’t you know, I still like them. They have a bit of a convoluted history starting, as all good things in my life always start, with someone else, with someone else who is kind. And so it continues: Thank you, Paul, and thank you, Sarah.
