John Karl Hirten at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor

Join me for my recitals at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor, San Francisco, on Saturday and Sunday, August 26 and 27, all at 4:00 PM. Watch this space for repertoire.

As part of their summer residency at Ely Cathedral, the Choir of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Berkeley, CA, will be performing my All Saints Evening Service. George Emblom is the Director of Music at St. Mark’s. Also, organist Jonathan Dimmock will be performing my new piece, Ein fest Burg, as part of this residency.

I’ve updated the Movie List to include “A Prayer for the Dying” and “The Commitments.”

Here’s a new piece, based on the Song of Songs, called Set me as a Seal. Written for the wedding of some friends of mine, and sung by baritone Tom Hart, you can access a sound clip below. If you’re interested, contact me and I’ll send you a copy.
