Musical Gems from a Blessed Month
December 26th, 2009

It has been a blessed month indeed! Here are a few excerpts worth a listen:
First, from our Living Wisdom High School Concert on Friday, Dec 11th, a piece by John Rutter titled Mary’s Lullaby.marys-lullaby.mp3

On Saturday, Dec 12th, I led an astounding performance of Swami Kriyananda’s Oratorio, Christ Lives! at Mills College in Oakland, in a beautiful chapel with marvelous acoustics! Here are a few choir pieces:
Christ Has Come
Christ Has Come
Sing Out With Joy
Sing Out With Joy
When Human Hopes Toward Thee Aspire
When Human Hopes Toward Thee Aspire
Thy Light Within Us Shining
Thy Light Within Us Shining

Then back at the village, on Sunday, Dec 13th, we had our World Brotherhood Day celebration, which included performances of:
The Christ Child’s Asleep (studio recording)
The Christ Child’s Asleep
And The Christmas Mystery (studio recording)christmas-mystery-for-xmas.mp3



Here is a link to the video of many of the pieces performed that afternoon (Three Wise Men at the beginning, The Christ Child’s Asleep and Mother of Wisdom at 24:23).

On Sunday morning Dec 20th, we had our Christmas Sunday Service, led by Jyotish and Devi, which can be viewed by visiting our video page. It includes our children’s choir joining us at the beginning of the video for Christ Has Come and The Christmas Mystery. You’ll easily find my daughter – the only one not standing still!img_7000.jpg

That same evening we had our annual Christmas concert on Sunday, Dec 20th, which included performances of The Blue Danube, For Unto Us a Child Is Born, the Halleluiah Chorus, a visit by the Victorian Singers, and many of Swami Kriyananda’s Christmas pieces.

It truly has been a blessed month, and our wish is for you to carry with you these vibrations of Light, Love, Peace, and Joy with you throughout this coming year! May God Bless you all.
