It was first presented during the 2008 Berks Jazz Fest in Reading, PA at the glorious First Baptist Church in downtown Reading. This concert was part of the afternoon vesper service and provided a joyful and uplifting message for those in attendance. The program includes traditional hymns arranged in a light jazz style, gospel pieces, and several of Duke Ellington's inspiring sacred pieces, written for his Sacred concerts in the 1960s.
