I have had this great a cappella piece of music on my Spotify list for months now and every time it plays I stop what I’m doing in awed and reverenced silence. I have sung in choirs before where this was a featured song, and everyone loved singing it. It is breathtaking when it is done right.
I looked until I found just the right group of singers to post it for you – and found to my great pleasure, a men’s choir from St. Paul’s Cathedral with men of all ages, from little boys with soprano voices to grown men who sing deep bass.
What is most impressive about this group of singers is that they do not care how silly they look when they sing. They are quite mesmerized in their music – and the result is a beautiful blending of voices. The diction is so clear and distinct – I can hear every word ending, even from the smaller boys. It is sung in a cathedral with high ceilings and AWESOME acoustics and so the result is a rich and velvety tone like bells ringing and stopping in mid-air. The true voice of heavenly angels.
The last couple of chords at the end of the piece are stunning and perfectly in tune – as they reach the climactic high point creating a feeling of well-being in those of us who have an appreciation for good music. Watch it all the way through and you’ll see what I mean. The little boys especially are wonderful to watch.
I am praying that this song will encourage you today and that it will cause you to stop and listen to the truth of the scripture, “God So Loved The World”. And give you fresh perspective on the great love of our God who sent His son…
