Seeing Green!

By Kati Harrison | Posted in Host Blogs, Vocalise | 2 Comments

Actually, we will be hearing Green on this St. Patrick’s Day Vocalise at 8:00 PM.  The prolific film and television composer and conductor Philip Green moved to Ireland towards the end of his career.  Falling for the people, country and music in a big way, Green wanted to pay personal tribute to Ireland with a mass.  He wrote “St. Patrick’s Mass” in the early 1970’s adding Irish folk-like sounding music, flutes and fiddles, to the standard mass setting.  This is sweet, enchanting music that may have you seeing lush, green landscapes.
