Two Sacred Songs
St. Luke's Choir (Salisbury, NC), Phillip Burgess, Conductor.
These songs were performed by the choir of St. Luke's Episcopal Church, Salisbury, North Carolina at the Grace Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, in connection with the Piccolo / Spoletto festival. "Into Your Hands" was also performed by the St. Luke's choir at National Cathederal, Washington, D.C. Earlier versions of these pieces, with organ and brass accompaniment, were performed and commissed by the choir of Christ Episcopal Church, Raleigh, North Carolina, as part of the celebration of the church's 175th anniversary. The theme from "Into Your Hands" has also been incorporated into Celebration!, an orchestral piece featuring piano and solo alto saxophone.
