Dear Friends in Christ,

This Sunday, the Fourth Sunday in Epiphany, we present a unique musical offering at the Church of St. Edward the Martyr. Caitlin Caruso and I will give the first liturgical performance of Nico Muhly's The Place of Understanding, setting texts by Christina Rosetti and the Book of Job. Muhly (pictured above) is a prolific composer of both concert and sacred music, having composed works for the Metropolitan Opera, New York Philharmonic, and Trinity Church, Wall Street. I am a scholar on his work, having worked for him as an arranger from 2014-2016. Muhly has given his blessing for this performance, and I believe it is a beautiful response to Psalm 111 (also sung in this weekend’s liturgy).


Whence then cometh wisdom? And where is the place of understanding? Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living.
God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof For he lookest to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven; To make the weight for the winds, and he weigheth the waters by measure And unto man he said:

“Behold, the fear of the Lord that is wisdom: and to depart from evil is understanding.

Job 28:20-28

I look forward to joining you all (virtually) in this weekend’s liturgies and sharing this beautiful music with our parish community and the world at large.

Soli Deo Gloria,
Buck McDaniel
Organist & Director of Music
