GBC Easter Cantata 2009

This past Sunday our church put on a special Easter Cantata that included our regular adult choir, children's choir, and orchestra (including a few extras who came down from BJU for the occasion).

This was the first time our church has done anything from the Messiah. I thought the Hallelujah Chorus went quite well. I would love to see us do more of that type of thing.

The combined choirs and orchestra also sang Chris Anderson's My Jesus, Fair. The orchestration for this piece was written by our pastor's daughter, Kaytlynn Wood.

Here are videos from three of the numbers.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for that! Your post brought tears to a certain mother's eyes!

What a blessing your church is to our family.

Maranatha!

Too bad the angle doesn't allow that mother to see her son very well in those videos. You can catch a glimpse every once in a while, though. Your daughter-in-law, on the other hand, is front and center, except for when she is holding up the words for the children.
