VIDEO: Come, O Long Expected Jesus (Advent Music)

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… 😆).

The MP3 can be downloaded here.

VIDEO: O Come Divine Messiah (Advent Music)

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!

The MP3 can be downloaded here.

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. 😆

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

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