Chad Rancourt writes for GTS News that David J. Hurd will leave his positions as professor of Church Music, Organist, and Director of Chapel Music at General Theological Seminary at the end of June:
With great sadness for his departure and with great joy for his many years of accomplishments, General Seminary will celebrate his 39 years here at a special Evensong on Wednesday, November 4, 2015, during the annual Alumni Gathering. Dean and President, the Very Rev. Kurt H. Dunkle will present Dr. Hurd with a special recognition for his many years of service to General and the Episcopal Church. A reception will follow.
… Regarding Hurd’s departure, Dean Dunkle says, “David Hurd’s influence on generations of church leaders is legion and for that General Seminary gives thanks. … [H]e had a significant impact on me as a priest, as I know he has impacted hundreds of others in our church. I will miss him and bless him in his next undertaking.”
