Although this video is a little over 30 minutes, it presents perhaps one of the best performances of Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Sancta Civitas. This video was produced by the BBC of the 2015 UK Proms.
Chris Garlick wrote: “This performance of Vaughan Williams literally unsung masterpiece, Sancta Civitas, is surely one of the most important events of this year’s Proms season. A first performance at the Proms of one of the most extraordinary 20th century choral works 90 years after its composition has to stand out. In addition, with Sir Mark Elder and the Halle proving to be very effective in their championship of British music and Vaughan Williams in particular, the quality of their performance was never in doubt.” For Sheet Music CLICK here!

Ochoa Middle School Choir sings A Peaceful Gloria by Greg Gilpin. Directed by Victoria Schmidt. Ochoa achieved Unanimous Superior rating at CMEA Festival in 2014. This is a rare and wonderful interpretation of the Gloria text, which opens softly and sensitively develops into a passionate, contemplative Gloria in Excelsis Deo…Alleluia.

This is a fabulous clip from CBS Sunday Morning about the impact that singing in a chorus has on not just singers, but everyone in their community…..I know choirs are just way too important to be ignored in our community and cut from our schools! People, young and old and everyone in between, need to join a choir and sing!
