True, it was pouring on Sunday for the US debut of Ex Cathedra in the Church of St Ignatius Loyola. But the concert was worth every effort to get there. We were invited by an usher to sit next to the statue of St Joseph for the best acoustics which turned out to be correct. What a wonderful experience we had. The singers of Ex Cathedra blended together well and the soloists had clear, beautiful voices. Jeffry Skidmore's conducting was outstanding.
