Bishop Dorsey, the Bishop of the Diocese of Orlando from 1990-2004, died on February 21, 2013 after a long cancer illness. The performance will feature the “Requiem in D Minor” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

“Bishop Dorsey was a great friend and supporter of the music program at the Shrine and especially of the Basilica Choir,” said Dr. William Picher, director of music ministries at the Basilica. “It is an honor for us to present this program in his memory featuring the music of Mozart, one of his favorite composers.”
