Working with the young men at St. Mark's School of Texas

Today I had the great privilege of spending most of the day at St. Mark's School of Texas.  The school is an amazing place. They have astounding facilities including a fabulous chapel and a new Letourneau organ on the way. I am in Dallas for the ACDA convention, and I didn't want to come without getting to hear the boys at St. Mark's.  Last year they commissioned La blanca palomica - a setting of a text from San Juan de la Cruz's Canticle of the Soul.  The choir was expertly prepared by ttheir choirmaster Tinsley Silcox. The boys really worked hard to listen, sing expressively, and sing in tune. You can hear the piece here. Kurtknecht.blogspot.com/2012/08/la-blanca-palomica.html
