Tournemire could be charming or he could bite your head off. One day I could not replace him at St. Clotilde because I had a wedding to play at another church. Tournemire played on Sunday, period—that was all. He did not play weddings and so forth. (He put all that on my back.) So I went to Tournemire’s house to tell him, “Master, I am sorry but, for once, I cannot replace you. I have another obligation to fulfill.” He said, “Get out of here!” I left for good.

4001 Francisco Guerrero (composer) died 1599AD

Most CCW donations are spent on mundane items like website repairs, but whenever possible we try to promote artists. For example, there wasn’t a decent picture of Guerrero (a devout Catholic who died in 1599AD) so we commissioned the jaw-dropping painting you see above. It’s based on Pacheco’s version, created the year Guerrero died.

Corpus Christi Watershed is a 100% volunteer organization; none of us is paid.

Please consider donating $5.00 per month.
