Deep river is a very ‘Anglican’ arrangement of true ‘Americana’, and was written for the choir of Saint Thomas in 1980. On 4 February 2012, at the Solemn Requiem for the repose of Gerre Hancock’s soul, it was sung alongside Durufle’s Requiem. The day prior, Hancock’s ashes had been interred beneath the church’s chancel floor, at the spot where he had conducted his choir for 33 years.
