This sounds amazing. Whether or not I would love the music (and I never really know with new stuff until I hear it), the idea of it and all the resonances you evoke are very appealing and it must feel incredibly exciting and worthwhile to be involved in something like this, and to know that it's also going to reach a wider audience on CD. Utterly exhausting too, I'm sure.

Robin's Mass is a remarkable piece of music. Countless people spoke to me about the music as well - you could hear the excitement in their voices. What was truly thrilling for me was to be standing at the altar and to see the expressions of wonder, dare I say rapture, on the faces of the congregation !

I love this music because it speaks to me about who we are at the Cathedral- beautiful, surprising, a little gritty, and occasionally startling. I love it! I love it!

Sounds great, Beth. I can't wait to hear it.

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
