Anyone who was thrilled by the Vierne piece that was played just now should come to a performance of Vierne's Solemn Mass by Saint George's Choral Society on Sunday 22nd April at 3pm in the Church of the Incarnation, 209 Madison Avenue at 35th Street. Apart from the mysterious beauty of Vierne's music, the program includes Ravel's Trois Chansons, Franck's Psaume 150 and Dextera Domini.
