Jan. 8 recital honors 400th anniversary of King James Bible

Brigham Young University’s School of Music will honor the 400th anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible with a guitar recital by faculty artist Michael Hicks Saturday, Jan. 8, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall, Harris Fine Arts Center.

Hicks’ recital is titled “Jesusongs: A Night of Old-Time Gospel and Christian Folk.” The performance is free, and audience members are encouraged to bring their Bibles.

Song titles include “Blessed Assurance,” “There is Power in the Blood,” “We are One in the Spirit” and “Forget Your Hexagram.”

Hicks recently received ASCAP’s Deems Taylor Award (news.byu.edu/archive10-dec-musicologyaward.aspx), one of the nation’s highest musicology honors, for the third time in his career.

He earned a doctorate in music arts from the University of Illinois at Urbana‒Champaign in 1984 and has been teaching music theory and composition at BYU since 1985. Hicks’ chamber and solo works have been performed and recorded by BYU faculty and student artists as well as performers around the country.
