Florence Price is my valentine this year! This brilliant woman spent many Valentine’s Days single, and it’s in those years that she wrote some of her best work.
Anyway, tune in to my performance of “A Pensive Mood”, from the set Seven Descriptive Pieces which I helped edit, on Feb. 14, 2021 at 5:30pm. My pre-recorded video will stream live on the YouTube channel of St. George’s Episcopal Church in Germantown, TN (link). The Price piece will be the prelude of a special online evensong service dedicated to Absalom Jones (1746-1818), the first Black Episcopal priest. I am honored that Rev. Dorothy Wells and Music Director Lucas Fletcher asked me to contribute to the service with a Florence Price piece.
