The Passion-Hymns, the 1657 Icelandic Easter Saga, were set to music of fifty Moravian hymn-tunes. Dall Wilson adapted it to English for concert performance.
Hallgrimur combined traditions of the Icelandic Saga Poet and the Moravian singing-service to create his Easter musical. Moravians, the Unitas Fratrum, published the first hymnal in Europe and grew from the Orthodox current of the Christian ocean with a motto, "Unity, Liberty, Love." Hallgrimur was a Lutheran Pastor. The gorgeous Erben organ at Old St. Patrick's Catholic Cathedral is ideal for these stately hymns and its healing message which unites Christian life. Old St. Patrick's NYC was the first St. Patrick's built in America.
