This week, Stan Schmidt, Host of Going Beyond Words offers to listeners on ACDA Radio and ChoralNet and opportunity to give Thanks and express Gratitude…..Writer Susan Palo Cherwien in her Reflections for Worship book “From Glory Into Glory” says “In a thousand voices, in a thousand faces…God’s goodness I proclaimed…In maple colored hillsides, in dappled shadow…God’s Goodness is proclaimed…Forest leaves dance, Cirrus Clouds Soar…A Thousand voices of Wonder….and we breath out song, we breath out creativity…singing, dancing, weaving, crafting, forging, sculpting lives of wonder, lives of gratitude, lives of fruitfulness;”
You will enjoy a non-stop hour of music for this special Holiday of Thanksgiving to enrich your listening experience…and encourage your thanks and gratitude. You know all of these wonderful melodies, some standard hymns, Shaker and other expressions that come from our musical history sung by some of our finest ensembles, such as The Dale Warland Singers, The Canadian Brass with the Elmer Iseler Singerts, The Tudor Choir from Washington State, the choirs from Brigham Young University, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Gloriae die Cantores, and the Nordic Choir. Some of the composers represented Robert Starer, Johann Sebastian Bach, Mack Wilberg, Stephen Paulus, Jackson Berkey, Ralph Vaughan Williams and Mendelssohn. Take the time to just relax and for one hour enjoy the music without waving your hands.
