A Gift

John and Karen Klinger blessed with me with a set of the CD's from the Kantorei of Concordia Theological Seminary - I've been listening and am convinced the music of heaven is on earth. Wow. These are good. I mean REALLY good. I'm ripping to iTunes and loading my iPod up for our trip out East. Thanks so much, Klingers! What a treasure!!!

Pastor Weedon,

Enjoy the music!!! Hope your upcoming trip is nice and 'low gas priced'. If you are near NC/VA border along I-85 contact me, would love to meet.

I guess that Juhl, Hahn, Braun and myself just assumed our instructor knew of this treasure. (I even listened to the CDs on the way to and from PALS. And Kress might be one of the voices that you hear.)
I think my favorite song is "Of the Father's Love Begotten" - followed closely by Starke's Te Deum.

The Issues, Etc. interview with Stephen Starke in March 2005 led to me buying The Seminary Kantorei CD "My Soul Doth Magnify the Lord." Pr. Starke wrote the text to "Christ Sits at God's Right Hand" which is on track 13 of that CD. It's also in the new hymnal (LSB 564), but on the CD you get to hear the text set to the beautiful arrangement by Kevin Hildebrand.

All of the hymns on the CD are the utmost quality in text, setting, and performance. I agree; it's the music of heaven brought to earth.
