Fifth Avenue Famous: The Extraordinary Story of Music at St Patrick's Cathedral offers a fine history of one of the most important churches in New York City, blending in a history of church music as a whole and telling of singers, music directors, and emerging religious trends and technological changes alike. The stories here offer an in-depth look at the history, choral music and evolution of music at St. Patrick's and makes for a fine collection documenting the cathedral's evolution and importance--a 'must' for any New York or spirituality or music shelf.
