Papal Resignation

With the surprise announcement of Pope Benedict XVI’s retirement this month, this Friday’s Choral Mass will take on a special significance. While I hope everyone was planning on attending to hear the fabulous music (including some new compositions), in this time of transition, I hope more people will attend to give thanks for the leadership Pope Benedict XVI has provided and that a worthy successor may be found for the Chair of Peter.
I am thankful for the opportunities that I had to sing and compose music for the Papal visit to New York City. It was a very memorable occasion that, even though stressful at times, is something I’d be happy to do again for the new pope.
