We need prayer and community more than ever now. And our choir scholars still need to learn and hone their skills. And so we developed a plan to bring in a production company and produce this video for the benefit of all people of good will. This is Lessons and Motets for Advent from Saint Barnabas Church.

The world in silence waits the day When hope shall sing its […]
I absolutely adore this Christmas hymn and in this version of it the horns are an amazing touch that add to the spirit of the lyrics. Sacred music has a multiplying effect on our prayers and devotions to Jesus Christ which is why I will be sharing more of it here on this site. I […]
