Notes & Reviews:

The choirs of the Cathedral, joined by organists Erik William Suter and Scott Hanoian plus guests Washington Symphonic Brass, offer a musical celebration of America's heritage of faith. The recording, directed by Michael McCarthy, features his setting of 'O Love of God' (Jerusalem) sung at the funeral of President Ronald Reagan, R. W. Dirksen's 'Father, in Thy Gracious Keeping,' and a selection of beloved American anthems and spirituals.
