In honor of the birthday of American poet Katharine Lee Bates (1859-1929), here is a performance of “America the Beautiful” by the Portland Choir and Orchestra.

Happy birthday to our national anthem

September 14, 2016

It’s the 202nd anniversary of the composition of “The Star Spangled Banner,” and I was happy to find this beautiful choral performance that includes the seldom-sung final verse.


Happy Armed Forces Day

Some beautiful music for Sunday

January 24, 2016

Death shall not destroy my comfort,
Christ shall guide me through the gloom;
Down He’ll send some heavenly convoy,
To escort my spirit home.

Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Oh, Hallelujah! That I do.
Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Mourners, you may love Him too.

Jordan’s stream shall not o’erflow me,
While my Savior’s by my side;
Canaan, Canaan lies before me; 
Soon I’ll cross the swelling tide. 

Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Oh, Hallelujah! That I do.
Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Mourners, you may love Him too.

See the happy spirits waiting,
On the banks beyond the stream; 
Sweet responses still repeating,
“Jesus! Jesus!” is their theme. 

Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Oh, Hallelujah! That I do.
Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Mourners, you may love Him too.
