Prelude and Fugue on the Life of Harriet Reynolds Krauth Spaeth 1845-1925
- In stock
Harriet Reynolds Krauth Spaeth (1845-1925), daughter of the nineteenth-century Lutheran theologian Charles Porterfield Krauth, was a highly educated and accomplished woman in her own right. As music editor of the Church Book with Music (1872), she was the only woman ever to serve in that capacity. The story of her life and contribution to the Lutheran tradition of liturgy and congregational song is told in this excellent treatment by Robert D. Hawkins, who initially presented this topic at the Vi Messerli Lectures in Church Music, October 16-18, 2011.
