Alice Tully et al. in Trinity Church (Manhattan) - 12 June, 1979

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 245:

At seven, at Trinity Church, a tribute to Alice Tully, the second half of which consisted of Paul Callaway playing (grandiloquently) my Quaker Reader, during which performance Alice and I were made to sit side by side with our backs to the alter, facing an audience of a thousand.
