VIDEO: Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence (Five Priest Ensemble!)

No, I’m not a quintuplet. :) But I did have a lot of fun with this one!

Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence is one of my favourite hymns, with a hauntingly beautiful, 17th century French melody (“Picardy”). The words are from a prayer written in the 4th/5th century.

I hope you enjoy this rendition! Or at least are slightly amused by my attempt at creating a composite choir. 😆

Monday Music: O God Beyond All Praising

Time for some #MondayMusic: “O God Beyond All Praising”

It’s from Gustav Holst, “Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity” aka “Thaxted.”

This was recorded when it was a little warmer outside. Enjoy! 😁

O Canada: #Snowtember Edition!

We got a freak snowstorm in Saskatoon in late September, 2019. One week prior we were wearing shorts and sandals. I’m not about to let that stop me!

Here’s my tribute to #Snowtember. I think this is by far the most Canadian thing I have ever done. 🇨🇦🌨❄️🎹

Enjoy! And feel free to share!
