Night of Miracles { John W. Peterson}

When I was in high school, many moons ago, in the early 1970s, our church choir performed a few of John W. Peterson’s cantatas.  If I am not mistaken, Night of Miracles was the first one we did.  Our young pastor and his wife directed and accompanied us.  It was a fabulous and meaningful experience for me, and I hope for the other participants.

These many years later I am searching YouTube for a recording of this cantata.  The first one I found, by the Nameless Company of Lisbon, is generally to my liking, as it is sung as written.  It is not performed in an English speaking country, but is sung in English.  That may be the reason I don’t care so much for the narrator, but the music is so well done I think it is worth listening to.

In the comments section it says that “This is a group of students directed by João Paulo Reya, who is a music and voice teacher, and this was recorded last Christmas at the 7th Day Adventist Central Church in Lisbon.”  They certainly have trained voices and the pianist is experienced, which makes for pleasant listening.  The entire video is 49 minutes long, with rather lengthy comments at the beginning (not in English), which end at 2:50.

{Just for the record, this is the 200th post!

Who would think it would come along so quickly?!

Thanks to all of you for your fabulous encouragement to keep going.

Give yourselves a pat on the back!

Remember the goal in the 100th post?

God has accomplished it!}
