UR READERS NEED to be aware of the personal Blog of conductor Charles Cole: charlescole.com. One of the leading choral conductors alive today (if not the most prominent), Mæstro Cole is also a gifted scholar, photographer, and renowned organist. He’s giving a concert 13 April 2013 at Notre Dame, Paris, and we are so pleased to see the Bach Eb Fugue (“St. Anne”) on the program. The picture you see on the right was taken in a private audience [url] his choir boys had with Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura. Mæstro Cole’s choir was mentioned by name in one of Pope Benedict XVI’s final public appearances. Bravo!
