I am very disappointed in the music. I was hoping for something that would allow me to enjoy and ponder the mysterious way music can take us to a higher level.

Kent was one of the early musical responders, with a Mozart Requiem benefit memorial concert at St. Ignatius in October '01, he's been in this since the outset.
His considerable talent and even more considerable good instincts are appropriate here. Well done, WQXR.
