Didn't George Carlin
, that delightful curmudgeon, once say something about how the only good part of Western religion was the music? Well, YMMV, of course; but we reckon this glorious concert will lift whatever flavor of human spirit you have. Organist Eric Mellenbruch
and the St. David's choir
, directed by David Stevens
, present early music based on hymns from the first English-language hymnal
, featuring Renaissance motets
and early Baroque organ verses
interspersed with the hymns themselves, as they would have been in that period.
