I’m so fortunate to have soprano Sarah Shafer singing my Poems of Gerard Manley Hopkins tonight, January 31st, 2014, at 7:30 pm, on Tenth Presbyterian Church’s concert series in Philadelphia. More about that concert here…I probably shouldn’t say it, but I’m fond of these early song! Very thankful that she’s performing these.

And around Chicago, the new group Aestas Consort will be singing two pieces from Vespers, Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern and Herr Christ, der einig Gotts Sohn in two concerts in Evanston and River Forest, tonight and Saturday night. More about the concerts here. The “Wie schön” they’re singing is in a new arrangement for strings and harpsichord. I had fun making this, and wrote a little about what that was like here.

All the best to all the performers!
