Quick Post #2 – the Concert at Epiphany

There was supposed to be a four-hand piano concert today, but when I got to the Church of the Epiphany, I discovered that the performers had canceled (I did not hear why) and that there was to be a substitute program of music by Gabriel Faure.  Oh, well, four-hand, faur-e.  I see why this substitute program occurred to them.

It was a wonderful concert, with piano and organ by the church music director, Jeremy Filsell, and vocals by Rachel Evangeline Barham and Sarah Issaelkhoury.  I always enjoy Faure, and the “Melodies” and “Messe Basse” were beautifully sung.  Filsell played two “Pieces Breves” and the Barcarolle no. 5 (organ and piano, respectively) with his usual skill.  Apparently they had only a few days to put together this program. What a job they did.
