Some inspiring and enjoyable music for Ascension on the great Australian program, For the God Who Sings. There’s a nice helping of Palestrina and Bach, plus a really nice piece by the Scot James MacMillan sung by the cathedral choir of St Mary’s Edinburgh.
Y’all knew I was a radio announcer for an NPR affiliate in my former life, right? My favorite summer I was doing three classical overnights midweek and caring for jazz programming on weekend evenings at the AM and FM stations in Rochester, New York.
Eventually, they went to automated programming for overnights–it was even cheaper than paying us part-timers. Ah well. It was time to graduate anyway.
