Here is some footage of the NZ Youth choir, Directed by David Squire, rehearsing He Wishes For the Cloths of Heaven in Hawke’s Bay on Wednesday April 18th 2012. It was a pleasure to spend time working with the NZYC on this piece. I can’t think of a better way for this piece to begin life than in the capable hands of this amazing youth choir!
The Napier Civic Choir, under Jose Aparicio, did a very brave and noble thing – they put on a concert featuring only local composers. The concert (see flyer for details, venue etc.) included three of my pieces (Ave Maria, Prayer of St Francis of Assisi, and May the Road Rise to Meet You) and was a resounding sucess! A big thank you to Jose and the choir for doing such a great job with the music.
