“I am searching all the time for a composer who says what America really ought to be saying at this stage…I am finding that so much church music is derivative at about 10 removes from anything authentic; but as I was listening I kept on saying to myself, ‘…this is authentic.’ “

– Erik Routley, minister, musicologist, composer, Westminster College of Music
