Voluntary Fugato on Hyfrydol June Nixon (b. 1942)
One of Australia’s best-known organists, choir trainers, and composers, June Nixon was the first woman to be granted the John Brooke prize for the Choir Training Diploma at the Royal College of Organists in London. In 1968 she was the winner of the Australian National Organ Competition, and in 1973, was appointed Organist and Director of Music at St. Paul’s Cathedral, Melbourne. She retired from this position in February 2013 and is now Organist Emerita. Nixon is a widely published composer, both in the USA and England, writing music that is accessible and enjoyable for both musicians and listeners. Several cathedral choirs have recorded her works, and her arrangement of the traditional carol The Holly and the Ivy was included in the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols from Kingʼs College, Cambridge.

Cleveland Williams, soloist
Albert Hay Malotte sang at Saint James Episcopal Church in Philadelphia as a choir boy, then studying the organ at home and in Paris. His career as an organist began in Chicago where he played for silent pictures, and he later concertized throughout the US and Europe. His setting of the Lord’s prayer was composed in 1935, and recorded by many notable singers. According to his New York Times obituary: “Mr. Malotte’s musical setting of ‘The Lord’s Prayer’ was the first one that achieved popularity, although the prayer had been set to music many times before.”
