This week’s edition of With Heart and Voice will feature three prominent composers of sacred choral and organ music born in the month of October… Einojuhani Rautavaara who would have been 90 years old on October 9; and remembering Ralph Vaughan Williams, and Herbert Howells.
One of the defining events in Herbert Howells’ life was the death of his nine-year-old son, Michael, from polio in 1935. It had a profound effect on him, and many of his later works. As we mark the Feast of St. Michael on September 29, we’ll hear several of Howells’ works relating to both St. Michael, and his son Michael. And we’ll hear organ music from Coventry Cathedral… formally named St. Michael’s Cathedral.
On this edition of With Heart and Voice, Peter DuBois will feature sacred choral and organ music portraying Jesus as both Lamb and Shepherd in various musical settings from across the centuries. Tune in for this exploration of this timeless and fundamental imagery of the faith.

Even as fall activities move into high gear, many yearn to continue the refreshment, relaxation, and renewal that summer brings. Peter DuBois has chosen sacred choral and organ music to prolong that feeling just a bit longer on this edition of With Heart and Voice.
The observance of Labor Day traditionally marks the unofficial end of summer –– AND, since it’s a quintessentially American holiday, on this edition of With Heart and Voice, we’ll focus primarily on sacred choral and organ music by American composers and performers. Join Peter DuBois for this all new program.
