This book presents a brief history of the Cedarville University Department of Music and Worship through the lens of the lives of six current or retired faculty members from 1965 to 2019. The featured Maestros are David Matson, Lyle Anderson, Charles Pagnard, Michael DiCuirci, Sr., Charles Clevenger, and Steven Winteregg. The biographies and history focus on the Maestros’ contributions to the Department and University in their devotion to service and ministry to students. The story reveals the sovereign hand of God in bringing each faculty member to the Department at just the right time to meet particular needs for critical growth.

The book is a result of archival studies in the Centennial Library Special Collections and personal interviews with each Maestro.
