It is with great pleasure that the CD, “Music at the Monastery” has been released. The CD is a compilation of music for the Passion of Jesus Christ, containing mostly compositions by me (this may seem a bit self-serving, but it does help avoid the whole copyright issue). This particular piece is my setting of the Ubi Caritas, a setting I like to call the “poor-man’s Duruflé.” When you listen to it, you’ll get the idea and why I like to call it that.
I want to note that I haven’t made any posts recently because the organ at the Monastery is down for the count! It’s a simple electrical problem, but it’s meant a couple of weeks of improvising on the piano. Not NEARLY as exciting as what I like to do, but has given me a chance to try out some rather Debussy-esque music.
