My World Tuesday: Summer Solstice at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine
There are some things for which it is worth getting out of bed at 2 a.m. The Paul Winter Consort's Summer Solstice celebration is one of them. My daughter and her best friend got out of the sack and into the car in time to enjoy the whole event. Adella's friend said to me, "I didn't sleep through it, but I rested through the quieter parts, and it was soothing." From a sixth grader. I love it. When it stopped being soothing, it was downright exciting. Sample the music here.
