I grew up in rural Mississippi in a tiny community called Edna. When I was in the second grade at Hub School, our pastor moved away. Because I knew and could play all the songs we ever sang, I suddenly became the church pianist. There was a tradition among small country churches where each one would host an all-music service whenever there was a fifth Sunday in a month.

Many years later, a friend’s Mother was doing hospice care work in Nashville. She wanted a new copy of a cassette tape of some old hymns I had made years earlier, to share with some of the patients she was caring for.

My reason and my inspiration for the collection, which ultimately became Fifth Sunday, was that the music might offer some Divine peace, comfort, and love to anyone in transition through the sounds of these sacred melodies.
