Richard Hillert was a noted Lutheran composer. He was Distinguished Professor of Music Emeritus at Concordia University Chicago, River Forest, Ill. He was best known for his work as a composer and teacher of composition. Among his most frequently performed liturgical works for congregation is Worthy Is Christ, with its antiphon, “This is the Feast of Victory” which was written as an alternate Song of Praise for inclusion in Setting One of the Holy Communion in Lutheran Book of Worship and Lutheran Worship. "This is the Feast" is now widely published in more than 20 recent worship books of many denominations, most recently in Lutheran Service Book and Evangelical Lutheran Worship. Other major liturgical works include a setting of Evening Prayer and a Eucharistic Festival Liturgy, which was first performed at Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago. He wrote liturgical pieces and hymns and served as music editor for Worship Supplement and Lutheran Book of Worship.
