I don’t often post a lot of “churchy” stuff (unless it’s a funny story that must be shared) as I guess I feel like my beliefs are my own and I don’t want to push anything on anyone. Besides, that’s not really what my little blog is all about. However, tonight there is something I absolutely must share.
I love music.
I love music to the core of my being… I listen to everything. I love everything from rock to hip hop, from dance to opera, from classical to indie. I have a little bit of everything in my itunes–there isn’t really one band or artist that dominates my play list. I typically only like a handful of songs from any CD so I have a huge hodge-podge of music.
…except for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
I love choral music. Love. I have been in choirs and ensembles all my life and love the music. Something about a beautiful harmony resonates within my soul and I get goosebumps. I have a collection of music from a variety of internationally known choirs, but the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is my favourite. Hands down.
I recently found a video for one of my all-time favourite pieces, “Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing” and I actually cried when I listened (embarrassing, I know. Music does this to me. *sigh*). Its absolutely beautiful. If you’re not into religious music, just listen to the harmony and the accompaniment.
The best action happens at 4:15 or so if you don’t want to listen to the whole thing, although I highly recommend it.
