Scoop: Sierra Master Chorale to perform “The Armed Man” again

Like others, we marveled at the Sierra Master Chorale’s performance of “The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace” in May. I wrote a review here. Now, I learned from an email, the group is going to perform this internationally acclaimed arrangement again – on Sept. 27.

A video clip is here: Benedictus. I’ve been humming this tune since I heard it – sometimes holding my arms up “for added feeling.” (My son can explain it to you.)

Here’s the email I received from InConcert Sierra:
