Swimming the Thames?
Planning to return to the Big Apple, once grading is finished, I consulted the current New Yorker for musical events during the Christmas season. I found this intriguing notice:
Harold Rosenberg’s Canticum Novum Singers team up with Parthenia, New York’s invaluable consort of viols, to offer “A Renaissance Advent,” a program of works by such composers as Josquin, Palestrina, and Handel, in the High Anglican ambience of St. Ignatius Loyola Church.
When pressed to comment, Vatican spokesman, Rev. Federico Lombardi, S.J., only muttered that he’s checking it out with his Superiors on the Borgo Santo Spirito.
