Cappella Romana on Performance Today

To celebrate Holy Week in the Orthodox church (Orthodox Pascha, or Easter, is this coming Sunday), Cappella Romana's Arctic Light concert will be broadcast tomorrow (Friday, April 25th) on Performance Today. The Arctic Light concert was recorded in St. Mary's Cathedral in January and its program featured music of the Finnish Orthodox church.

Performance Today will add this broadcast to their web site's selection of past programs and make the audio available for replay for another seven days.

Also, I briefly talked with Mark Powell, Cappella Romana's executive director, and he mentioned that CR just received a grant from the Finlandia Foundation so that they can do a recording of Finnish Orthodox music from the Arctic Light concert, but this time the recording will be under controlled conditions (not a live concert recording).
