Notes on the Music

Joel Martinson was born in Minneapolis in 1960 and is currently Director of Music Ministries and Organist at the Church of the Transfiguration (Episcopal) in Dallas, Texas. A graduate of the University of North Texas in organ performance and composition, he was commissioned to compose "O Spirit all-embracing" in 1997 for a confirmation.

John Gardner (1917-2011) was an English composer of classical choral and orchestral music. "Tomorrow shall be my dancing day," his best-known composition, was written for the Choir of St Paul’s Girls School in West London where John Gardner was Director of Music in the 1960s (following in the tradition of Gustav Holst at the school).
