This year for the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day mass we are blessed to have composer and organist Michael McCabe play the piano at the services.
Michael began his study of piano and organ as a child. As a student at Creighton University, McCabe was appointed university organist and choir director. During a 20 year military career, various assignments provided McCabe with unique opportunities to study with leaders in the field of Anglican church music, including Leo Sowerby, David McK. Williams, Thomas Matthews, and Dale Wood. McCabe has served numerous churches, including Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. As a published composer, McCabe was elected to ASCAP in 1972, and his ASCAP credits include NBC Television, foreign and domestic recordings, and the Stockholm and Stuttgart Music Festivals.
Michael was the principal organist at Dowd Memorial Chapel at Boys Town. He is often a guest organist here at Atonement, and you’ll often see him in the congregation.
Michael has also composed a number of works which include “Christ Baptized”. We are blessed to have him as our guest pianist this Christmas. Join us for a truly beautiful service Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
