This chapter focuses on John Irvin, who sang in a St. Luke quartet and played guitar with his father. Lucille, Carrol, Harold, and Dorothy sang in the church choir, but even before their baby sister could walk, they realized she had more musical talent than all of them. “When she was eight months old, my daughter hummed ‘Down by the Riverside’ and ‘Jesus Loves Me,’” Kate said. “I had a quilt that I had on the floor for her, and she wanted to look at magazines. Every time she saw a musical note, she tried to sing.”.

Keywords:   John Irvin, St. Luke quartet, church choir, musical talent, musical note
