Dad didn’t have any stories connected to this Cantata, The Holy City: A Sacred Cantata by Alfred R. Gaul. There is a long profession performance list on Youtube, but I selected to post this alumni performance. Without microphones, some of the solo work does not come out very clearly and they are missing confidence in places. I just like it for the evident love for the piece. You can tell that there is a connection for the singers and the director. I love the directions. This Jubilee choir had evidently sang this together former years. Very cool.
If there were specific solo bits that Dad recalled, I would post those pages of music here, but for now, I’m just getting this Novello posted here.
