American Guild of Organists 2014 National Convention service in review

The November 2014 issue of The Diapason includes a review of one of the two services that I led at First Church in Boston for the 2014 National Convention of the American Guild of Organists. The review neglects to mention that I am the Director of Music at First Church. Among the comments:
  • "the service...[was] certainly [a] convention highlight...model of liturgical music"
  • "The choral music [directed by Paul Cienniwa] for this service was beautifully done, much of it a cappella by a small and obviously very professional choir."
  • "Perhaps most thrilling of all, though, was the postlude [played by Paul Cienniwa], from the Liturgical Suite for Organ, op. 69, by Larry Thomas Bell."
  • "The entire service was planned and executed with intelligence and care."
Hey, not bad!
