Christopher Wicks Honors Sisters with Recital

Music alum Christopher Wicks will present a recital and lecture titled on Wednesday, June 12, at 2 p.m. at Mary's Woods at Marylhurst.

In the Composing Habit: Two Musical Sisters will examine the lives and musical careers of two Sisters of the Holy Names. Sr. Anne Cecile Daigle (1908-1998) and Sr. Mary Magdalen Fautch (1916-2005) were celebrated composers and professors of music. Wicks will speak about the composers and will play live examples of their organ and piano music, as well as recordings of orchestral excerpts.

The evening before, on Tuesday, June 11 at 7 p.m., Wicks will present a preview of his lecture-recital at Saint Edward's Episcopal Church at 211 West Center Street in Silverton.

Excerpt from Wicks' blog:

In my final year as an undergraduate, and again after earning my first master's degree in composition, I had the privilege of studying under the composers Sr. Anne Cecile Daigle and Sr. Magdalen Fautch, both of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary at Marylhurst [University] near Portland, Oregon. Both sisters are now deceased, but recently, with the cooperation of the Holy Names Heritage Center, I have undertaken a research project concerning their musical works. Building on biographical work already done at the Heritage Center, I looked through several boxes of scores and recordings to come to a deeper understanding of the sisters' life work.
