Under the Musical Direction of Waltier Blocker
Announce the Release of Their New CD
"Worship and Praise"
Musical Director Waltier Blocker wrote and arranged a compilation of the Episcopal Church Mass set to gospel music and songs that will inspire the soul, encourage the heart and magnify Jesus Christ.
Waltier Blocker has been the musical and spiritual director since the choir began in 1991. Waltier comes from a gospel music backround but has studied classical music at Westminster Choir College of Princeton, New Jersey as well as the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. With evangelism being a very important factor in this ministry the choir began to learn various styles of Gospel, Contemporary and Christian music. The diversity of Mr. Blocker's talent is apparent with the anointed, spiritual and moving song of "Thank You" to the sound of old style, foot tapping music in "I've Got To Praise His Name" to showcasing the contemporary gospel sound in "You're Never Alone" while offering the black religious experience in Episcopal/Anglican liturgical worship by updating the traditional morning service mass music. This anointed recording features some of the Philadelphia area finest singers and musicians to include; Beverly Brockington, Willis Hickerson and Jerome Robbins just to name a few.
The A. E. church of St. Thomas Gospel Choir is a one bodied, one spirit, Christ centered organization that uses their God given talents of music as a ministry to spread the gospel to the lost and to edify Christ through the word of God through song.
By doing so they are able to reach out to men and women of all ages and backgrounds. Their unique styles, sounds and powerful ministry have led them to minister in numerous churches, halls, and even synagogues, along the East Coast and as far as Costa Rica.
