Music for Sunday, February 4

The St. Michael’s music program recognizes Black History Month in February by programming at least one work each Sunday by an African-American composer. Undine Smith Moore’s arrangement of the Negro spiritual We shall walk through the valley is our pick for the 9:00 am offertory anthem on February 4. Moore (pictured), known to many as the “Dean of Black Women Composers,” was a renowned 20th-century composer and professor of music with a special interest in black spirituals and folk music.
