    New York area readers might be interested in this concert by The New York Virtuoso Singers. Sunday's performance at St. Ignatius of Antioch Episcopal Church on the Upper West Side will include several premieres, including my setting of In the Bleak Midwinter for mixed choir, soprano solo, and organ. It will also feature Music for the Mass, a rarely performed work by Milton Babbitt, which should be fascinating. There will also be a pre-concert lecture/discussion at 2:15.

    I'd be interested, but we sing Vespers on Sundays at the same hour!

    There's a little more info about "Music for the Mass", which appears to be a Mass setting in Latin, but without a Credo, here and here.

    Here is the Telegraph obituary for Babbitt, who died January 29.

    Any Charles Wuorinen? That's his church.
