I’ll never forget hearing the first performance of Nancy Galbraith‘s Missa Mysteriorum, in 1999 by the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh. This piece (along with Adams’ Harmonielehre) meant so much to my musical development and education. I am forever thankful that Robert Page commissioned this work, and so grateful that Nancy has composed for us a new, full orchestra version to premiere at Montview this Spring.

Many thanks to my friends and colleagues for sharing their incredible talents yesterday and helping to record demos of my two new choral arrangements, completed last fall.  It was a blast!  (and much better than watching all that pre-game Super Bowl nonsense on TV)!
