Of Note

Debussy composed La Mer (The Sea) over a span of a year and a half, most of which was well inland and inspired by representations in art and literature. He completed the work, though, in an English coastal town, and wrote to his publisher that it was “a charming peaceful spot: the sea unfurls itself with an utterly British correctness.”

John Rutter’s Mass of the Children was written to give children the opportunity to perform alongside adult, professional counterparts; Rutter, a boy soprano in his childhood, was always thrilled to have that experience in works like Mahler’s Third Symphony and Britten’s War Requiem.
