St. John’s Music Program - New CD Recording!

A Crown of Rejoicing

coverimage.jpg

This recording recognizes three decades of service by St. John's Music Director Thomas Edward Morgan. As part of the 30th Anniversary Celebration on September 2, 2018, the community came together with designated gifts to fund the recording and production of this CD. Thank you to all who contributed. The music, selected from recent favorites of the choirs and the congregation, displays the rich musical tradition at St. John's, from the St. John's Choir to the Compline Choir to our magnificent Austin/Morel organ. We hope that you enjoy A Crown of Rejoicing.
