Congratulations to Dr. Marty Wheeler Burnett

Date: December 5, 2023

Today we celebrate the achievement of our very own Dr. Marty Wheeler Burnett, Associate Professor of Church Music and Director of Chapel Music. She has four titles in Resounding Voices, which is a new ecumenical hymnal supplement with hymns and service music by women. It is compiled by the Women’s Sacred Music Project and you can obtain your own free copy from “The Hymn Society in the United States and Canada.”

Marty’s four compositions are:
Let the peoples praise you, O God (Psalm 67)
Mathes (Lord, you give the great commission)
Sanctus (Holy, holy, holy)
Take my life, and let it be

I marvel at the creation of music. I live in the world of propositions, sentences, and arguments; yet it is in the world of music that one’s heart soars and one feels the world in a different way. It is true that no one leaves church “humming the words of a sermon”.

The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D.
Dean and President of Virginia Theological Seminary and the President of The General Theological Seminary
