World-renowned conductor John Nelson tells a story of Polish composer Henryk Gorecki [go-RES-key], who came to Chicago in 1994 to hear the premiere recording of his Miserere in the renovated St. Mary of the Angels Church on North Hermitage Avenue. John was conducting the piece, and the first of two sessions went badly. During the second session, John asked the composer to stand in the center of the church in which they were singing and told the chorus to sing to the composer. The performance was unbelievable. At the end, an awed chorus erupted in applause. From Wheaton Alumni, September 1998
