To Know Christ and to Make Him Known

Dec. 2, 2018: Craig Sellar (“Robin”) Lang

Today’s Music: By coincidence we feature this morning two instances of the work of Craig Sellar (“Robin”) Lang, a New Zealand-born British organist, composer and music teacher (1891-1971). He added the descant line to our processional hymn, “Hark! the glad sound” – he wrote several descants used in our hymnal – and he composed the tune itself for the communion hymn, “From glory to glory.” As well as secular and church works, Lang wrote or composed several influential texts and exercises for teaching purposes. D.
