Charles C. Converse

1832 - 1918 Person Name: C. C. Converse Composer of "[There's a wideness in God's mercy]" in The New Living Hymns (Living Hymns No. 2) Pseudonyms: Nevers, Karl Re­den, Revons Born in Warren, Massachusetts, on October 7, 1832, Charles Crozat Converse was the son of one of the early settlers of Woburn, Massachusetts. He went to Leipzig in 1855 where he studied law and philosophy, as well as music theory and composition under Moritz Hauptmann, E. Friedrich Richter, and Louis Plaidy at the Leipzig Conservatory. There also he made the acquaintance of Franz Liszt and Louis Spohr. He returned to the United States in 1859 and graduated from the Albany, New York, Law School two years later. From 1875 he practiced law in Erie, Pennsylvania, where he was also in charge of Burdetta Organ Company. He composed a number of hymn tunes, as well as larger works. A Doctor of Music degree was offered him by Sterndale Bennett of Cambridge University in England for the five-voice double fugue at the end of his Psalm-Cantata on Psalm 126, but he declined the offer. In 1895 Rutherford College honored him with a Doctor of Laws degree. He spent his last years in Highwood, New Jersey, where he died October 18, 1918. – Hymnal Companion to the Lutheran Book of Worship

Jacques Berthier

1923 - 1994 Composer of "[Glory to God in the highest]" in RitualSong Jacques Berthier (b. Auxerre, Burgundy, June 27, 1923; d. June 27, 1994) A son of musical parents, Berthier studied music at the Ecole Cesar Franck in Paris. From 1961 until his death he served as organist at St. Ignace Church, Paris. Although his published works include numerous compositions for organ, voice, and instruments, Berthier is best known as the composer of service music for the Taizé community near Cluny, Burgundy. Influenced by the French liturgist and church musician Joseph Gelineau, Berthier began writing songs for equal voices in 1955 for the services of the then nascent community of twenty brothers at Taizé. As the Taizé community grew, Berthier continued to compose most of the mini-hymns, canons, and various associated instrumental arrangements, which are now universally known as the Taizé repertoire. In the past two decades this repertoire has become widely used in North American church music in both Roman Catholic and Protestant traditions. Bert Polman

Marty Haugen

b. 1950 Adapter of "[Lamb of God]" in Gather Comprehensive, Second Edition Marty Haugen (b. 1950), is a prolific liturgical composer with many songs included in hymnals across the liturgical spectrum of North American hymnals and beyond, with many songs translated into different languages. He was raised in the American Lutheran Church, received a BA in psychology from Luther College, yet found his first position as a church musician in a Roman Catholic parish at a time when the Roman Catholic Church was undergoing profound liturgical and musical changes after Vatican II. Finding a vocation in that parish to provide accessible songs for worship, he continued to compose and to study, receiving an MA in pastoral studies at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul Minnesota. A number of liturgical settings were prepared for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and more than 400 of his compositions are available from several publishers, especially GIA Publications, who also produced some 30 recordings of his songs. He is composer-in-residence at Mayflower Community Congregational Church in Minneapolis and continues to compose and travel to speak and teach at worship events around the world. Emily Brink
