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 St. Peters: Link to Grace Cathedral Choir performing Sleeps Judea Fair.

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. Additional information: (a)  Brief History of the Church and (b) Pipe organ at St. Peters.
