I (heart) Sowerby.

Me,too. He is the master.

Whenever I am in Chicago and walk by the Episcopal Cathedral of St. James, I think about that organ being his workbench.

These choral evensongs will be held each Wednesday night for the next several weeks in preparation for England. Check it out if you can. Forty five minutes of music and chanting, no sermon -- except for the music, which I think is the sermon in evensongs.
