DURING THE EPIPHANY SEASON this year, we will experience some of the best of the music of the African American tradition in both anthems and hymns at the Choral Eucharist each Sunday. While Spirituals and hymns in a more “gospel” style may seem an odd mix in Episcopal liturgy, this music often reaches into places in the soul not easily touched. We will also be singing the “Service for St. Peter’s” which was commissioned by our parish a few years ago. David Hurd, an African American composer, is a one of the most widely-recognized concert organists, composers of sacred music, and church musicians in the United States. He presently serves as Organist and Master of the Choir at St. Mary the Virgin Episcopal Church in Manhattan.
