And now for a little Rossini   Leave a comment

More music performed by the 1978 PCC Chamber Singers.  This time it’s a little Rossini:
La Passeggiata
Accompanied again by Twyla Meyer and the soprano (heard around 4:20) is the spectacular Rebecca Sherburn.  This group was really quite impressive, I know that a number of the singers in this group have careers as singers.   Twyla is in great demand throughout LA and Bill Hatcher has had stellar career in choral music.  I feel extremely fortunate that I had the opportunity to learn from these amazing musicians.

more from PCC – 1978   Leave a comment

Audite Nova by Lassus this time – it’s a very silly piece. 
I remember really liking this piece and having a great time performing it.  Listening to it now, it seems so heavy, i suppose it should, with 6 on a part.  I’ve performed and listened to so much one-on-a-part that it’s clear how much I’ve changed in the past 30 years.  Thank goodness for that – it would be horrible to think that I hadn’t changed.
I’ve got a few more of these and also some recordings of the Pasadena Chorale from around 79 to 83.  I’ll get them posted after I finish the Chamber Singers stuff
