An NPM Moment: Festival Alleluias

A Blessed Tuesday to you all.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, the J. S. Paluch Company / World Library Publications was a significant underwriter for the final major event of the NPM convention two weeks ago. That event was a concert at Orchestra Hall here in Chicago. Fr. John Moulder and his jazz ensemble performed John's Trinity. Then the William Ferris Chorale, under the direction of Paul French, performed stunning choral works. The evening concluded with the 2300 musicians in attendance standing and singing Festival Alleluias, Ferris' choral arrangement of Charles Marie Widor's organ work from Symphony No. 5, Toccata. Two short sections from from the NPM event have appeared on YouTube. You can view and listen here and here

Let me know what you think. Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
