From the Altricham Choral Society, UK.
“The concert was performed to a very packed audience in the beautiful setting of St. Peter’s Church. The choir performed the first three unaccompanied pieces standing around the church, thus encircling the audience with the music, which created a very intimate bond. I have taken the liberty of attaching a photograph of the church in order that you might get a better idea of how the choir looked underneath the arches and around the pillars. The wooden beams of the roof and tiled floor of course provide a fabulous acoustic.
Psalm 84 was a pleasure to sing and was extremely well received by the 300 or so audience…
With best regards

Just completed tonight: a bitter-sweet musical composition! THE CLOCK (Zegar) for two-part children’s chorus and piano, a setting of Words by Abraham (“Abramek”) Koplowicz (b. 1930, Lodz, Poland, d. 1944, Auschwitz-Birkenau) as translated by Sarah Lawson and Małgorzata Koraszewska. I am already shopping it to a first-rate choral director.  :-)

I hope you enjoy this YouTube music video of my SATB arrangement of VOCALISE by Sergei Rachmaninoff performed by the National Lutheran Choir, David Cherwien, Conductor.

Here is my YouTube video for my setting of PSALM 1.

At long last, I have a recording of my challenging SATB choral work PSALM 1 (1998, publ. 1999) recorded alone by the versatile vocalist Matthew Curtis (www.choraltracks.com). https://soundcloud.com/stanley-m-hoffman-1/psalm-1
