Paul D. Weber is Professor Emeritus of Church Music and Director of Choral Activities and the Sacred Music Program at Lenoir-Rhyne University in North Carolina. His works, mostly unpublished, include hymn texts and tunes and choral-orchestral works. In 2003 he received the Raabe Prize for Excellence in Sacred Composition from ALCM. Weber received a DMA in choral conducting from The University of Iowa, an MMA in composition from Yale University, and an MM in composition from Washington University, St. Louis. Though having strong roots in the LCMS, he is rostered as a pastor in the ELCA. He is published by Augsburg, Concordia, and MorningStar. He is a contributing composer to the ELW and LSB.
I have just retired after 20 years as Professor of Church Music & Director of Choral Activities at Lenoir-Rhyne University in North Carolina. As a choral conductor/composer/professor/pastor I have composed everything from a cappella works for divisi ensembles to accompanied works with orchestra to church anthems, hymns, and liturgy. I am presently fulfilling commissions for the 500th anniversary year. I especially enjoy setting biblical texts and often write my own hymn texts.
