Gratitude for the 34 years music ministry of James Walker at All Saints Church, Pasadena

With gratitude for the 34 year music ministry of James Walker at All Saints Church, Pasadena

If you know James at all, it comes as no surprise that he has a searchable database of the music used at every service during his tenure as music director at All Saints Church.

I am grateful to have received four premiere performances from Coventry and Canterbury Choirs over the years.

The highlight of my experience there was the performance of "All Unto Me,"inspired by and dedicated to Archbishop Desmond Tutu, in 2011, on the day he last preached from our pulpit.
