Aug. 13--A CD of "What I Have Seen and Heard," a choral piece premiered by the VocalEssence Ensemble Singers last November in Rochester, is now available.

The piece, composed by Sebastian Modarelli, music director at the Church of St. John the Evangelist, was performed as the final celebration of the 150th anniversary of the church. The choral work consists of 13 a cappella pieces that recount the journey of St. John the apostle, as told in his gospels.

In addition to the recording of the performance, the CD comes with a booklet of full lyrics and brief commentaries for each section.

The disc is available for $20 at the church office, 11 Fourth Ave. S.W., during business hours. Excerpts can be heard at
