Our music program is off to a strong start this program year! Christ Church is partnering with St. John's, Norwood Parish to offer two weekly webinars focusing on vocal technique, music theory, aural skills and sight-singing. We are affectionately calling it "Quarantine Quire Camp."
This past week, members of both choirs submitted individual recordings of Hymn 527, which we spliced together to make this fabulous virtual choir performance.
The words are below - sing along, and enjoy! Singing songs of expectation, onward goes the pilgrim band, through the night of doubt and sorrow, marching to the promised land. Clear before us through the darkness gleams and burns the guiding light: trusting God we march together stepping fearless through the night. One the light of God’s own presence, o’er his ransomed people shed, chasing far the gloom and terror, brightening all the path we tread: one the object of our journey, one the faith which never tires, one the earnest looking forward, one the hope our God inspires. One the strain the lips of thousands lift as from the heart of one; one the conflict, one the peril, one the march in God begun: one the gladness of rejoicing on the far eternal shore, where the one almighty Father reigns in love for evermore.
