    Rev. Matthew C. Morelli Installed as Pastor


Visiting Brass Ensemble Records Here

Father Morelli gave a thumbs-up to Dr. Robert Horton's request to record "some Christmas music" in St. Anthony Church's brilliant acoustical space. Rob and five of his Millersville University brass musician friends spent several hours during the evening of December 3, 2020 rehearsing to get these selections just right. The purpose was for use in a local television station's Christmas eve presentation. Following are links to the video recordings.

     The brass group would be very happy to return here in a concert setting—what say we? . . . when it's safe to return to pre-COVID life.

     As well as harpsichord instructor at MU, Dr. Horton is the Organist & Choirmaster at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He has performed in several organ concert programs held at St. Anthony of Padua Church.
