Is there anything more Christmas like than Christmas music? And when it comes to Christmas music Salvation Army bands are well known to be on the street corner and mall. Though getting into a mall in Canada is close to impossible these days! Note the bias in my comment – yup, I think it’s a shame. Anyway….
Here’s a video that IHQ put out in 2014 that takes you around the world in one carol.
The CSS were in Hamilton this weekend. They are still in early days and their musical development is ongoing….just added bass and percussion to the team for example. They are also expanding their repertoire. It is amazing to me how many pieces they have memorized, and remember that they must learn both words and musical parts.
As well as listening to the CSS it struck me this past weekend, and has on other occasions, that people love to sing along! The song – He’s got the whole world in His hands – really got people singing! And the intent of this group was to get people to sing! Listen and tap your toes….and do you feel like singing along? I think you will.
The Territorial Music School always features a video elective and this year was no exception. Here’s their adaptation of Matthew 25:14-30, the parable of the talents.
