About the Peter R. Hallock Institute


Peter R. Hallock

The Hallock Institute, a ministry of the Diocese of Olympia, oversees an archive of the music and papers of Peter R. Hallock and manages the assets of the Institute. The Institute creates editions of Hallock’s unpublished works; advocates, publicizes and broadens the audience for Hallock’s music; makes small grants to support the performance of his music; and presents workshops and educational symposia focused on Hallock’s music and liturgical innovations and the Compline Choir.


The Hallock Institute will further the legacy of the music of Peter R. Hallock and ensure that his music is widely known, by cultivating and engaging potential partners and stakeholders and creating a broad network of musicians, liturgists, and clergy who champion Hallock’s music. The Institute will make Hallock’s music readily available in reliable editions and encourage its performance and recording, and it will ensure the future of the Compline Choir by celebrating and sharing with others its core values, practices and principles.
