recording in grace cathedral

Today I did the first half of a recording session with the Pacific Collegium in Grace Cathedral (Episcopalian) in San Francisco. We were trying to record Britten’s Hymn To The Virgin and A Boy Was Born. Unfortunately, our governor’s visit precipitated a helicopter flying over the church periodically and ruining any hope of recording for the first two hours. After that we did manage to get some things laid down, more or less. I’m not sure when the commercial CD will be available, but I hope I get to sing with this group some more. It’s definitely the best chamber group I’ve gotten a chance to sing with. And Britten is awesome.
