Patrick Prescod was born in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. He was a virtuosic pianist. He studied at Trinity College of Music in London, then returned to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, taught music, led The Kingston Chorale and Cantemus, and worked as the Music Director for the Education Ministry from 1979-1982. He edited the Caribbean hymnal Sing A New Song No. 3. Prescod tried to integrate the familiar cultural features, rhythms, and musical forms into the unfamiliar context of worship.
