A Legacy of Sacred Songs

In December 2019, longtime Brick Church member and historian E. Deane Turner published an anthology of Brick Church’s beloved hymns. An anonymous donor provided the funding to have this anthology printed and mailed to the entire Brick Church membership last December. This anthology has quickly become an integral part of our worship services. In conversation with member and Ministry of Music benefactor Don Wilson, Don encouraged us to create an online audio companion for the anthology. This online audio companion available at the Brick Church website would allow for all at their convenience to enjoy these great hymns of the church. The hymns are clearly indexed and a link is provided for an audio recording of a verse of each hymn. Minister of Music Keith S. Tóth is playing Brick Church’s acclaimed Anderson organ for each recording.

We are grateful to Don and Lynn Wilson and the Wilson Family Sacred Music Fund for making the recording and online publishing of this audio companion possible. We hope that the members and friends of The Brick Church will find spiritual comfort and enjoyment in hearing and singing these time-honored hymns of the faith for years to come. If you would like to receive a copy of A Legacy of Sacred Songs, contact Linda Thompson.
