A Tribute to Salvation Army Musicians, Music and Composers

Ray Steadman-Allen

Today we learnt of the Promotion to Glory of one of Salvation Army's greatest composers.
Ray has been a prolific contributor of compositions of all styles over a very long period. Just a few that come to mind in no particular order are Air Varie - Go Down Moses, Tone Poem - Holy War, Daystar, Gone My Care, March - Crown of Conquest, Suite - Lord of the Sea and so on.
One of my favourites is the simple piece "In Quiet Pastures".
At this time our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Joy and daughters Barbara & Rosemary.
