David Sinden, organist & conductor

Hello! I'm David Sinden, the Organist & Director of Music at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in St. Louis, Missouri.

I write a blog, and you can follow me on Twitter.

I've started a new podcast with the Rev. Ian Lasch called "All Things Rite & Musical". Yeah, we know. It's a great title.

The first episode came out August 1, 2017. The podcast is about liturgy and music (of course) from our Episcopal/Anglican perspective. To hear the podcast, and to learn more, you can visit riteandmusical.org. You can subscribe via iTunes, Stitcher, or the feed.
