Posts Tagged ‘Moody Bible Institute’

Some clever people have a sidebar that includes a list of current books they’re reading, movies they’ve watched, and music they are listening to.  Here, I am less cleverly recommending the music playing in my CD player right now. 

Every Sunday morning the classical station plays sacred choral music instead of the mainly instrumental pieces.  Whenever I can I turn the radio to that for the short five minute trip to church.  Movie soundtracks with such choirs or boys choirs are my favorite.  There is a track at the end of The Fellowship of the Ring with a boys choir.  And Shadowlands has choral music straight through.  Disney made a movie in the 90’s that was all about a boys choir, called Perfect Harmony.  I first discovered Michael Card through Unveiled Hope, when he was in his more classical style stage. 

When I was a senior in high school I attended a concert by Moody Bible Institute’s Chorale.  It was the most soaring worship experience in which I ever participated – and I only listened.  Honestly, the waves of music and blending of parts brought me with it to the throne of heaven, and I worshiped my God with a hundred silent amen’s. 

After that I also heard the Women’s Concert Choir and Bell Ensemble, and then the Men’s Collegiate Choir, both of which were incredible.  I happened to have friends in each, but that was only the door to interest.  If you want uplifting, beautiful music, go to their concerts; buy their CD’s. 

To God be all glory.
