  1. Our orchestra, the Filarmónica de Jalisco here in Guadalajara, Mexico, will be performing this piece on this upcoming Friday and Sunday. I have posted a link to this page to the Facebook group which includes musicians of the orchestra and many members of the State Choir. I am very grateful for the opportunity to share your unique insights.I believe, in particular, that the connection to the “Huapango” will resonate with all of us. Thank you so much for your generosity in sharing your thoughts in this video.

  2. I am doing our season brochure for my choir, Schola Cantorum, in the bay area. This season we’ll be doing your Magnificat, the first time I’ve done this work. What a privilege and a joy it is to hear your thoughts and considerations about this very special work. I am even more excited about learning this work than I was. Just knowing it’s a Rutter work is always exciting — but seeing you discuss your process and presentation, well, this really made my day. I wish we could have you here for the performance in March, LOL! Anyway, thanks so much for posting this.We will do you proud.

    Thank you for sharing these insights. My choir is singing your Magnificat next Sunday. It is one of my favorite pieces to sing. Thank you for the wonderful alto parts.
