For twenty years, the Women’s Sacred Music Project has been advancing women’s achievements in sacred music by:
Discovering a broad range of sacred music by women, much of it unpublished.
Publishing women’s sacred music in Voice Found & Leaders Guide to Voices Found.
Commissioning work by women addressing themes of women in Sacred Scriptures.
Presenting concerts of sacred music by women of various religious traditions.
Educating individuals and communities in the rich resources of women’s sacred music.
20th Anniversary Celebration SuccessScores of Women’s Sacred Music Project supporters joined in the happy celebration of its twentieth anniversary at the dinner October 15 at the Overbrook Golf Club. The Rev. Erika Takacs and the Boys and Girls Choir of St. Mark’s Church, Locust Street, sang musical tributes to the honorees, the Rt. Rev. Frank Griswold, former Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, the Rt. Rev. Barbara Harris, retired Suffragan Bishop of Massachusetts, and Rosemont College. Read More >
Working with the Standing Committee on Liturgy and Music of the Episcopal Church, the Project produced this hymnal supplement to celebrate the gifts of women. Voices Found: Women in the Church’s Song, was published in 2003 by Church Publishing, Inc.
While the Episcopal Church published this hymnal, it is designed for ecumenical use. Toward this end workshops have been presented in many different cities. Promotion of Voices Found is an ongoing project and we welcome requests for workshops or demonstrations by churches or related organizations of all denominations.
