Sleeps Judea Fair

    Growing up in San Francisco, I looked forward to Christmas eve with my parents at St.
     Peters where "Sleeps Judea Fair" by Hugh Mackinnon was played at midnight each year.
     (And of course, I also looked forward to returning home to open gifts.)



    "Mr. Mackinnon" was the Choir Director at Grace Cathedral before joining

Notes.

Hugh A MacKinnon: 1891-1981

St. Peters Episcopal Church, located in San Francisco's Richmond District, served a dedicated and diverse congregation.
The church was damaged beyond repair by the 1989 earthquake--a grave lost to the community.
