Mighty Fortress

 The few times I’ve been lucky enough to sing a piece under the direction of the composer, the experience has always made the piece come that much more alive. I suspect such is the case here for the Vancouver Youth Choir and Adam Con’s rhythmic arrangement of the German hymn, “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God”.

Nearer

 I’ve long been a fan of the Stellenbosch University Choir and their arrangement of the classic hymn ‘Nearer My God To Thee’, sung here in Afrikaans, is really wonderful.
