We’re back! Sing Amen took a little hiatus after Christmas, but here at last is our first podcast of the new year. As most people know by now, World Library Publications has officially joined GIA as a new division of the company, and the past couple of months have been full of transitions and moves and new and old friends working together—it’s a very exciting time, and we are all eager to see what the future brings!

Today’s podcast is an interview with Los Angeles composer Carol Browning, who was kind enough to sit down for about half an hour with me when she was in Chicago to record her new collection, Unknown Blessings, which is newly released and will be featured at next week’s Los Angeles Religious Education Congress. It was a delightful conversation, about her background and her process as a composer, and about the new collection—we will hear a few selections from it as well.

So enjoy!
