Harps Eternal: American Folk Hymns
The FAPC Chamber Choir, directed by Ryan Jackson
Patrick Kreeger, organ and piano
WHAT TO EXPECT
Experience this country's rich sacred music heritage through stunning choral arrangements of beloved American folk hymns such as "How Can I Keep from Singing?," "Peace Like a River," and "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing." Most of these songs were popularized in the early 19th century, but the amateur musicians who wrote them continued a long tradition of pairing secular tunes with new religious texts. Choral composers of recent decades such as Alice Parker and Paul Halley have given new life to this spirited music in beautiful settings for world-class vocal ensembles. Join the FAPC Chamber Choir for this joyful celebration of American hymnody.
