The Choral Scholars, Norma de Waal Malefyt and I produced a CD with 22 tracks (Cry Out to God!). But we also recorded all the “B Sides” you’ve been enjoying here over the last few weeks, as well as reading 200 some Psalm settings in preparation for the recording. That’s pretty exhausting stuff, and there are bound to be some moments in which things get giddy.
Here, in a “choral scholars gone wild” moment, is our reading of Psalm 2. We were chanting through the Psalm and it occurred to me how funny it would be to not only chant the text “The God whose throne is in heaven is laughing,” but to also chant the laughing itself. You can hear the ridiculous result here.
