Last night I had a rehearsal with The Choral Scholars. (You’ll remember TCS from our CD Global Songs for Worship.) We sang through 20 songs, the first of many marathon sessions coming throughout the spring and summer. All of this work will result in a CD of Psalms that will be released in conjunction with the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship‘s new Psalm collection.
I’m pretty excited about this. As you can hear from this rough recording of the rehearsal, TCS sounds great even when they’re sight reading. And they’re fun to work with, too! Pique your interest in the project by taking a listen to my arrangement of Bruce Benedict‘s Thou God of Love (Psalm 120).
We had a good time! I was exhausted at the end, though!
