The Chancel Choir has decided after considering several options and with the assistance of H. Hanson, our Interim Choir Director, to commission an anthem as a suitable remembrance of Ray Woods, not only for us, but also for the larger music community. H. Hanson has contacted Mark Hayes, a composer of several anthems we sing, to create this dedicated music. It would be a four-part choir arrangement. The fee will be approximately $3000 and take about six months.
If you wish to contribute to this endeavor, please make your donation payable to GGUMC with “Ray Woods Memorial” on the memo line. Any extra funds will go the Organ Fund because Ray was an accomplished organist himself and a supporter of all types of music.
