With Heart and Voice Tribute to Richard Gladwell
WXXI presents a special tribute to With Heart and Voice host, Richard Gladwell, who passed away on Thursday.
Richard Gladwell, host of WXXI's With Heart and Voice passed away on Thursday, October 15, 2009 after battling brain cancer. Since 1989 Mr. Gladwell’s weekly program of choral and organ music was heard Sunday mornings on Classical 91.5/90.3, and on more than 100 radio stations across the country.
Mr. Gladwell amassed a collection of about 8,500 choral and organ recordings from around the world, which he shared with his With Heart and Voice listeners every week. His collection spanned the full range of Western religious music, from the Gothic period through 20th century. With Heart and Voice often celebrated the seasons of the church year; however, it does not endorse any religious belief. Instead, it focuses on the richness and beauty of sacred music.
This Sunday, October 18, Classical 91.5 will broadcast a special tribute to With Heart and Voice host, Richard Gladwell, who passed away on Thursday. Co-hosted by Jeanne Fisher and Peter DuBois, the program will include portions of interviews that Richard recorded over the years, and will feature some of his favorite music. Selections include Sir Hubert Parry’s I Was Glad, How Lovely is Thy Dwelling Place from the Brahms Requiem, Steal Away as sung by Jesse Norman, John Rutter’s Requiem and hymns by Stanford and Vaughan Williams. The With Heart and Voice Tribute to Richard Gladwell will be broadcast this Sunday morning at 10:00, and again Sunday evening at 6:00. Tune in to WXXI-FM 91.5, WXXY-FM 90.3, WXXI-HD 91.5-2, or listen on the web at www.wxxi.org/listen.
