An Open Door

In the fall of 2006, the Choir School of First Presbyterian Church recorded its first full-length CD of choral and organ music.  Directed by Robert Nicholls and accompanied by John Schwandt, the CD presents selections from the regular repertoire of the choir that you might hear in a worship service.  Many tracks are by Jack Burnam, a Wilmington DE native who has been active as a church musician for thirty years.  Many other composers are also featured including Robert Nicholls, Richard Proulx, William Boyce and S. S. Wesley.  Copies of the CD are available free of charge in the church office.
