VIDEO: Creator of the Stars of Night (Advent Music)

This is a more simple, vulnerable video for today: just me, a microphone, and a piano, singing to the Creator the stars of night.

(In the cold Canadian winter. 🥶)

The MP3 can be downloaded here.

This 9th century chant is hauntingly beautiful in its noble simplicity and depth of meaning. For example:

“Thou grieving at the bitter cry,
Of all creation doomed to die,
Didst come to save a ruined race,
With healing gifts of heav’nly grace.

Thou camest, Bridegroom of the Bride,
As drew the world to ev’ningtide,
Proceeding from a Virgin shrine,
The Son of Man, yet Lord Divine.”

How amazing is it that we have a Saviour?! Come, Lord Jesus!

Thanks for listening! Feel free to give this video a share 😊

Here’s the latest instalment in my Advent music video series! video series! Advent music is amazing. The depth of lyrics, the beautiful melodies… yeah. I love it! Come, O Long Expected Jesus is one of those incredible hymns.

In this video it’s five of me singing, plus a piano track (though I combined the footage in a more traditional way… 😆).

What are your favourite hymns?

Advent hymns are among my favourite Christian songs sung during the year. “O Come Divine Messiah” is very high on my list of great hymns and I had a lot of fun putting this together!

This a cappella choir is, well, me. Times four. I used some compositing and masking techniques in Final Cut Pro X to blend together my performances, recorded at different angles. I hope you enjoy the result!

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

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. 😆
