The Rev. Carlton T. Russell is Professor of Music and College Organist, Emeritus at Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts, where he taught for 41 years. In 2006, after retiring to Maine, he and his wife Lorna S. Russell, also an organist, became ministers of music at St. Francis by the Sea Episcopal Church in Blue Hill. An Episcopal priest, Dr. Russell holds degrees from Amherst College, Princeton University, and The Episcopal Divinity School, and the Choirmaster (Ch.M.) certificate of The American Guild of Organists. His articles and reviews  have appeared in The Musical Quarterly, College Music Symposium, and The American Organist. His anthems have been published by G. Schirmer, H. W. Gray, and Paraclete Press, as well as by St. James Music Press; and his setting of the Holy Eucharist, Rite Two was published by Harold Flammer. In addition to conducting the choir at St. Francis, he continues to compose sacred choral music. He plays the harpsichord in a Baroque music ensemble, The Somerset Consort. A past dean of the Bangor (Maine) Chapter of the AGO, he is also a director of the St. John’s Organ Society, an organization committed to the preservation and appreciation of the large 1860 E. & G. G. Hook pipe organ, Opus #288 at St. John’s Roman Catholic Church in Bangor, on which he played 20 recitals between 1979 and 2011.
