The Program

This is the program I sang the other night:

Adelaide, op. 46
Maigesang, op. 52, no. 4
An die Hoffnung, op. 94
(Ludwig van Beethoven, 1770-1827)

Trois melodies
Le sourire
La fiancée perdue
(Olivier Messiaen, 1908-1992)

Three Scottish Songs
Scots Song
The Children
(James MacMillan, b. 1959)


Go, Lovely Rose (Roger Quilter, 1877-1953)
To God
So We’ll Go No More A-Roving (Maude Valérie White, 1855-1937)
Silent Noon (Ralph Vaughan Williams, 1872-1958)
As I Walked Out One Evening (Elisabeth Lutyens, 1906-1983)

The Troparion of Kassiani (offered in memory of John Stewart Allitt) (Ivan Moody, b. 1964)

Zigeunerlieder, op. 103
He, Zigeuner
Hochgetürmte Rimaflut
Wisst ihr, wann mein Kindchen
Lieber Gott, du weisst
Brauner Bursche führt zum Tanze
Röslein dreie in der Reihe
Kommt dir manchmal in der Sinn
Rote Abend wolken zieh’n am Firmament
(Johannes Brahms, 1833-1897)

For an encore, I sang a beautiful song by Fred Rogers from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, "When the Day Turns Into Night."

More on the program later, and thank you for your prayers, which were effective.
