Meet two of the finest musicians in Southern California. Hear how music came into their lives and how music has led them to two of the most prominent positions in Church Music anywhere in the country. We will explore the rich musical program at St. James and how it has developed over the last 20 years under the director of Canon Buonemani. You will hear a wide variety of music recorded live by the St James Choir and special organ arrangements written by both Canon Bounemani and Dr. Mueller, performed on the historic organ at St. James. It is certainly the continuation of the rebirth of the great English choral tradition and proof that tradition is alive and well in Southern California at the hands of this spectacular musicians.
