The Confession Stone - Songs of Mary

  • St. Mary the Virgin Anglican Church 1701 Elgin Road Victoria, BC, V8R 5L8 Canada (map)

I have been privileged to perform this work numerous times. “The Confession Stone" was commissioned for Maureen Forrester in 1966. It is "Seven Songs of Mary", depicting Christ from birth through crucifixion based on the poems of Owen Dobson. Maureen used to take copies of the score with her wherever she went to give to students who wanted to be coached. Here is a link to more information about the work I am so looking forward to performing this gorgeous work once again along with my friends Marnie Setka-Mooney and Sara Partridge who will be performing Pergolesi's Stabat Mater at the same concert.
