New Virtual Choir for Christmas!
"The God Before All Ages"

The results of our recent Virtual Choir recording of "Christ Is Risen!" - thanks to the talented and joyful participants - were fantastic! We invite you to sing for our second Virtual Choir project: "The God Before All Ages," a new SATB choral arrangement by Fr. Michael Pallad of the beautiful Christmas Kontakion.

Enjoy online rehearsals (optional), meeting new friends, and singing with folks from throughout the country and beyond! The rehearsals will be on four consecutive Saturdays: Oct. 30, Nov. 6, Nov. 13 and Nov. 20, at 1:45 PM Mountain Standard Time. NOTE: The starting times may be different for you after Nov. 7 when Daylight Saving Time ends.

Check out this sample of Fr. Michael's new choral arrangement of the beautiful 6th century Christmas hymn of St. Romanos.

The final video will be posted here and on social media on Christmas Eve.
