Host David Garland invites weekday Evening Music host Terrance McKnight to present sacred music that he knows and loves, and Terrance joins David to offer us Duke Ellington's "Second Sacred Concert." This multi-part work brings Ellington's colorful, jazz-based music together with a sense of worship and wonder. The piece was dear to Ellington's heart, and was first performed at New York's Cathedral of St. John the Divine in 1968.
