While classical music has always been affected by what’s happening in the world around it, never in the industry’s history has it just completely shut down. Until now. In this moment, what is a classical music podcast supposed to do?
Classically Speaking will be documenting this unprecedented cancellation, starting from our place safe-at-home. This dispatch comes from Matthew Phelps: an organist, choir director, and pianist.
Here is Phelps in action with the professional chorus that he has built over the last three years, Vocal Arts Nashville. They are performing one of Hubert Parry’s Songs of Farewell: My Soul, There Is A Country.
