We have completed this project with gratitude to God and in memory of our parents, Lauchlin and Mildred Bethune and John and Virginia Redhead, and in honor of our families. We also celebrate the love for music and instruction given by Dr. Austin Lovelace, of Denver, and the late Florence Hunt, of Greensboro, NC. Added to these blessings are the love, friendship, and support of the members and staff of BIacksburg United Methodist Church, Blacksburg, VA, where Virginia has served as organist since 1989 and Dick served as Parish Associate from 1993-1998.
The compositions recorded on this sampler disk have been selected from a number of different genres in vocal, keyboard, and harp repertoire and represent favorites of Dick and Virginia Bethune.
