Holy Cross Chapel Artist Concert Dedicated to Memory of Highly Acclaimed Organist

February 6th, 2013 by 

Nationally renowned organist Judith Hancock will perform as part of the College of the Holy Cross’ Chapel Artist Series on Sunday, Feb. 24 at 3 p.m. in St. Joseph Memorial Chapel. The concert will be dedicated to Hancock’s late husband, Gerre Hancock, and will consist of works by Duruflé, Guilain, Mendelssohn, Respighi, Dupré and Gerre Hancock. The performance is free, open to the public and handicap accessible.

Hancock is a senior lecturer in organ and sacred music at the University of Texas, Austin, and she has performed numerous recitals throughout the U.S., including appearances at the conventions of The American Guild of Organists. Formerly the associate organist of St. Thomas Church on Fifth Avenue in New York and director of music at St. James’ Church on Madison Avenue, N.Y., Hancock is a graduate of Syracuse University and the Union Theological Seminary in New York City. In 2004, St. Dunstan’s College of Sacred Music of Providence, R.I, awarded her an honorary degree of doctor of sacred music. 

Gerre Hancock, who was one of America’s most acclaimed concert organists and choral directors, passed away last year. Judith’s husband of 50 years, he taught alongside her at the University of Texas, Austin, where together they built a program of studies in organ and the practice of sacred music.
