To Know Christ and to Make Him Known

Sept. 15, 2019: St. Columba (arr. by Robin Milford)

A note about the Prelude: Good Shepherd parishioners will easily recognize the tune on which Danny’s prelude is based. St. Columba by name, it is the Irish tune that we frequently sing on Good Shepherd Sunday for hymn 645, “The king of love my shepherd is.” Robin Milford (d. 1959), who made the arrangement, was an English composer, primarily of orchestral and choir music, who studied with two giants of English 20th century music, Gustav Holst and Ralph Vaughan Williams, the latter a very prominent presence in our hymnal.– D. Boelzner
