We preview a rare performance, taking place here in Houston, of the Sacred Service by 20th-century Swiss-American composer Ernest Bloch. The composer’s grandson, Ernie Bloch, joins us in the studio, along with Grammy-winning baritone Mark S. Doss, and Phillip Kloeckner, artistic director of the Houston-based United Nations Association International Choir. They talk about and share excerpts from Mister Bloch’s choral-and-orchestral masterpiece, written on the brink of WWII.
Ernie Bloch, Mark S. Doss and Phillip Kloeckner talk with St.John Flynn.
