| ||When Mirth for Music Longs: Hymns for Potomac Parish|
Saint Francis Choir & Assisi Chamber Singers
The selection of hymns on this recording accurately reflects the life of Saint Francis, Potomac Parish. The range of texts runs from the ancient 'Of the Father's love begotten' to a late 20th century adaptation of Holy Scripture. Isaac Watts, James Montgomery, and Charles Wesley are represented, as are deeply expressed truths of anonymous Irish poets and African American Christians. . . .

| ||Evensong for the Feast of Saint Clare of Assisi|
Saint Anthony Boy & Saint Clare Girl Choirs; Treble Choral Scholars of the Saint Francis Choir; Women of the Assisi Chamber Singers; Gary Davison, Organist & Choirmaster
Our endeavor here is to offer in the form of Evensong thanks to God for Blessed Clare's life in Christ and her example to us as servants and fellow disciples of our Lord and Saviour. This is our fourth parish recording and a companion to the first disc we made six years ago, Matins for the Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi. It continues the practice of issuing recordings representative of our corporate worship life at Saint Francis Church.
