Description:

Calvin Hampton was a leading American organist and composer of sacred music. His marvelous tune ST. HELENA is associated with two introspective and profound texts, one reflecting on the mystery of Mary becoming the mother of Christ, and the other meditating on the all-encompassing grace of God. Master organist and composer John Ferguson arranged these hymns for mixed choir with a flowing, colorful organ accompaniment and descant for C or Bb instrument.
