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 also have a podcast with the Rev. Ian Lasch called "All Things Rite & Musical". The podcast is about liturgy and music (of course) from our Episcopal/Anglican perspective. To listen to episodes, and to learn more, you can visit riteandmusical.org.

As we draw approach the 100th anniversary of the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols from King's College, I am frequently asked where one can find my Carol Service Spreadsheets.
