Following the concert, there will be a CD signing party to mark the release of “Lux Aeterna,” recorded in St. Peter’s Church last June. This is the first professionally released CD utilizing the magnificent Gress-Miles organ of St. Peter’s, and will make a GREAT Christmas gift. Hope to see you this evening!
