Carl Schalk, author, editor, and lecturer, is one of the modern churchs most influencial composers of choral music and hymns. He has lifted for the church the importance and excellence of the Lutheran heritage of music and faith. In 1965 he returned to his alma mater, Concordia College, River Forest, where he taught until he retired in 1994. Carl has served with the Hymn Society and the Inter-Lutheran Commission on Worship. His 80-plus hymn tunes and carols appear in the hymnals of more than 30 denominations in the U.S.A., Canada, Europe, Japan, and Southeast Asia.
