+Paul Manz+ 1919-2009

October 29, 2009

I received more information about Dr. Manz’s death from MorningStar:

“Beloved composer, organist, and church musician Dr. Paul Manz passed away in St. Paul Minnesota on Wednesday evening, October 29, after several weeks of hospice care.  He was 90 years old.  He died surrounded by his family while they sang his famous motet “E’en So, Lord Jesus, Quickly Come.”  Funeral services will be held in St. Paul on Sunday afternoon, November 8.  Paul’s many compositions, recordings, and hymn festivals have influenced the art and practice of church music in the United States since the 1960’s. His playing and teaching has influenced untold numbers of organists throughout this country who considered him a mentor and friend.”
