The Church of St. Andrew in Marblehead will present a concert entitled “Cries and Ballads of London” The concert will be in the church, with limited attendance, and will also be streamed live online. It is made possible in part by the 2020-2021 Gian Lyman Silbiger Grant of the Viola da Gamba Society of New England. This award fosters the performance of music for viols and voices around New England and encourages further exploration of the viol and its music. The program, under the direction of St. Andrew’s Music Director Mary Jodice, will feature the eight-voice chamber choir Jubilate, in residence at St. Andrews, as well as the El Dorado Viol Consort. The groups will perform secular early music, centering on “The Cries of London” by Orlando Gibbons (1583-1625), which reflects cries of street vendors selling their wares. “When I have traveled to London, I have always wondered what Old London looked like,” says Jodice. I have long had this work in mind as an anchor for the concert.” Jodice points out that Jubilate will also sing sprightly vocal music about the springtime, including songs by Morley, Marenzio and Byrd. Members of the El Dorado Viol Consort are Carol Lewis, Karen Burciaga, Hannah Davidson, Mai-Lan Broekman, and Alice Mroszczyk. They will play fantasias by Ravenscroft, Coperario and Woodcock, and a pavan by Tomkins. Closer to the date of the concert, St. Andrews will be taking reservations for this event on their...

His “Vierne 2012” tour attracted international attention and critical acclaim for marathon performances of the six organ symphonies of Louis Vierne in six major North American cities. The Los Angeles Times called his performance “a major surprise of the summer, a true revelation.” His most recent recording, Christopher Houlihan plays Bach (Azica), was praised as “playful, celebratory and sparkling with color” (The Whole Note), and American Record Guide stated, “there’s no denying Houlihan’s extraordinary achievement.” Christopher Houlihan is the John Rose Distinguished College Organist-and-Director of Chapel Music at Trinity College in Hartford, Conn., succeeding his former teacher, John Rose.

The Springfield MA Chapter is holding a special midsummer on-line regional event. We will be "visiting" virtually the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris and its organist Olivier Latry. We will have video clips from before the fire followed by a live Q&A session with Olivier from his home in Paris! Travel restrictions make it unlikely that any of us will be going across the Pond on organ tours, and certainly no one will be visiting Notre Dame for years to come, so we hope you will join us for this special opportunity. It will be via Zoom and the link will be sent to those requesting it. Anyone interested should email the chapter: agospringfieldma@gmail.com
