Program and Notes
The Worlds Above
Choir of Men and Boys
Grace Cathedral, San Francisco
Christopher Putnam, Organist
John Fenstermaker, Director
If you walk into Grace Cathedral and look up, you will see something quite unusual. The arches of the Gothic vaulting are present, but there is no ceiling between the arches. Barely visible is the underside of the roof, painted black. The illusion is of a Gothic structure without obstruction between it and the heavens.
The choir of men and boys creates a similar effect in sound with this program of music from our own times—close your eyes and experience The Worlds Above from Grace Cathedral!
