On this edition of The Choral Mix, Kent Tritle takes us on a walking tour through Manhattan's Upper West Side. We visit four different churches and hear examples of the music they are featuring this very Sunday.
On our Sunday stroll up and down Broadway and Amsterdam Avenues, we hear Lenten works by Stainer and Chilcott, two different versions of God So Loved The Worlds and a Gregorian chant in preparation of Easter.
Also on the program are the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis set to music by Stanford. For more information on these four churches and their musical programming please visit their websites listed below.
