  1. I would go just to hear "I was Glad" by Sir Hubert Parry.At the end those high B flats in the sopranos just make your spine tingle. Richard was very High Church Anglican, a consummate gentleman and a good host. I don't think we could find anyone like that nowadays, do you? If so, who? Sunday mornings I always listened to WXXI at 8 a.m. for his program.

    I hope they keep it on. Someone said they might do re-runs.

  3. You should volunteer to do it, Gen.

    LOL I would love to. I do have the required "massive collection" of sacred music. I'm content with having my little music segment to the right side of the screen, though.

    However, if anyone from WXXI happens to be reading this, give me a call. 😉

  5. We could do it together. I've been listening to classical music since it was WBFB in the early 60s. You have to admit that Rochester is the best city to be in if you like classical music. I went to the EROI concert at Christ Church last night and was absolutely taken aback by the Bach program. Professor Porter did Bach's Passacaglia and Fugue in CMinor. Really a very excellent concert. Higgs and Davidsson performed also.

    Where are these classical concerts advertised? I am about to join the Rochester Theater Organ Society. I understand they have excellent concerts. Would be interested in others.

    If you listen to WXXI FM, 91.5, you'll get all the dates and times for concerts.
