May 18, 2013

"The winning entry of the seventh annual anthem competition of the First Baptist Church of Worcester, Massachusetts is by Scott Perkins of Greencastle, Indiana," reports The Diapason.   The monthly international publication, which is dedicated to the organ, harpsichord and church music, notes that Perkins is an assistant professor in the DePauw University School of Music, "teaching theory, musicianship, and composition."

The text adds, "Entitled Peace 1 Leave with You, the anthem is based on John 14:23, 25-28 NRSV, for SATB choir, organ, and harp."
