Paul McCartney again classical
Found on http://blog.choralnet.org
So Paul McCartney has written yet another oratorio:
Excuse me if I'm cynical, despite the award; McCartney's track record in turning his knack for writing catchy three-minute songs into major choral works is about as impressive as Arthur Sullivan's. But maybe he's surprise me this time.
Ecce Cor Meum, the classical oratorio former Beatle Paul McCartney wrote for his late wife Linda, will make its Canadian debut Friday in London, Ont., with a performance featuring more than 230 singers.
It is only the third performance worldwide for the choral piece, which won the best album award at the Classical Brits this May.
