A couple of people who have reviewed my book talked about the need to hear the music I wrote about. My publisher looked into including recordings in the ebook edition, but I think between getting permissions and the cost it just became unworkable.
I worry that people won’t find the right pieces. For instance, Victoria wrote more than one Agnus Dei and there are two in the mass I wrote about. The Agnus Dei I feature is the second one. I found a lovely version on YouTube, sung by the Choir of St Martin in the Field.
I thought of putting together a Spotify playlist. But how many people use Spotify? Perhaps I should make a page of links here.
Grace Church, the place where the Choral Society sings, in 1846, when it was just built …
Grace Church now.
