David Hurd is internationally recognized as one of the foremost church musicians and concert organists in the United States, with a long list of honors and achievements, and extraordinary expertise in organ performance, improvisation, and composition. He served on the faculty of The General Theological Seminary in New York from 1976 until 2015, first as director of chapel music and later as organist and professor of church music. He is the widely published composer of dozens of hymns, choral works, settings of the liturgy, and organ works, and was one of the major contributors of new music to The Hymnal 1982 of the Episcopal Church. In May 2016, Dr. Hurd was named organist-choirmaster of the famed Church of St. Mary the Virgin in New York.
