Christin Cooper, Assistant Music Director for Children
This Sunday’s music features the diverse voices of America as we mark the occasion of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. African-American composers like William Grant Still, Betty Jackson King, and H. T. Burleigh made significant contributions to the repertoire of classically trained organists, pianists, and vocalists. Indeed, Burleigh’s settings of spirituals played a significant role in introducing this unique tradition into the American mainstream, and influenced the compositions of European composers such as Antonín Dvořák. Burleigh lived for many years in Erie, PA where he got his start in church music at the Episcopal Cathedral of St. Paul. The incipit of Burleigh’s last published hymn, “In Christ there is no East or West”, can be seen in the stained glass windows of the cathedral today. His feast day is celebrated in the Episcopal church on September 11th.
In addition to hymns and spiritual settings, we’ll highlight Thomas Dorsey’s famous gospel song “Precious Lord, Take My Hand” (a favorite of Dr. King), as well as familiar Civil Rights anthems like “Lift Every Voice and Sing” and Pete Seeger’s “If I Had a Hammer”. In closing, we are reminded of the power of music to create an interfaith community through the message of “Peace, Salaam, Shalom.”
