Review for The King's Counterpoint:

Co-founded in 2014 by Dr. Judith Overcash Acres and David Acres, The King’s Counterpoint is a professional vocal ensemble specializing in the performance of sacred and secular music from the Middle Ages through the modern era. With a primary mission to explore the variety and beauty found in a cappella vocal music, The King's Counterpoint is committed to creating captivating programs designed to entertain, educate, and make this magnificent music come alive for our audiences.

David Acres, King’s Counterpoint’s music director, said, “Angelus ad Virginem, our program for St. Paul’s annual candlelight concert, is filled to overflowing with glorious choral music from across the centuries. From the austere beauty of medieval plainsong chant to the ornate joy of the Baroque; from some of the earliest known compositions to works created in our own time, King’s Counterpoint will take our audience on a musical journey that celebrates the Advent and Christmas season with a selection of beautiful music to ‘stir the soul’!” 

Paul Thomas, music director at St. Paul’s, notes, “We are delighted to present this outstanding vocal ensemble in our annual candlelight concert, a seasonal offering we hope will touch everyone’s hearts with the spiritual beauty found at this time of year.”

Please Stop Calling Us “Latinx”

But let’s start with some numbers: a mere 3 percent of Americans of Latin-American descent use “Latinx” to describe themselves. This is based on a 2020 Pew Research poll of about 3,000 American Latinos. Those who want for “Latinx” to become the default say it’s preferable because it’s ... (click for more)
