1999 - While Minister of Music at Saint David's Episcopal, I chose music based on scripture within the liturgical year. For Easter, I sympathized with these hymn lyrics of religious doubt, resetting them for my adult choir.
Recorded during my VCU Composition Recital (2001): me as baritone, Matt Wenninger singing tenor, alto Amy Daugherty Wenninger and jazz soprano Terri Murphy.


How oft, O Lord, Thy face hath shone on doubting souls whose wills were true! Thou Christ of Peter and of John, thou art the Christ of Thomas too. He loved Thee well, and calmly said, "Come, let us go, and die with Him." Yet when Thine Easter-news was spread, 'mid all its light his faith was dim. His brethren's word he would not take, but craved to touch those hands of Thine. When thou didst thine appear and spake, he saw and hailed his Lord divine. O Savior, make Thy presence known to all who doubt Thy word in Thee; and teach us in that word alone to find the truth that sets us free. Amen.
