    Anna G. Gallos, choir director

    Anna Gerotheou Gallos, a prolific composer of Greek Orthodox Church music over a career that spanned eight decades, died at home on Feb. 4 of complications from the flu and Parkinson's disease. The Timonium resident was 94. A strong, feisty woman, whose life was steeped in the Greek Orthodox Church - both her father and husband were priests - she became one of a handful of musicians to attempt to return the American church's music to its roots in the Byzantine church, according to a fellow musician Nicholas B. Kyrus of Washington, D.C. When the first Greek immigrants settled in the U.S., they westernized their music as part of a process of assimilation, Kyrus said.
