Psalms, Prayers, and Visions: the music of Roger Petrich

Yesterday at St. Thomas More, we vocalists ad instrumentalists presented a program called "Psalms, Prayers, and Visions." It was a collection of pieces written entirely by our Music Director, Roger Petrich. Some pieces were for vocal solo, some included voice and instruments, some were for small vocal ensemble, and a couple were sung by the whole choir. Many of the pieces had been done several times at St. Thomas More in the context of various liturgies, but some were completely new to our ears. I think we all had a great time learning and performing Roger's pieces, and hopefully some of the newly-heard works will appear in future liturgies.
