About the CD
People of the Light features music which is patterned after the church year.
The Advent Song, Introit, God is with us and This is why tell of waiting in hope, angels singing and the sure knowledge that God will never leave us.
A setting of James Mongomery’s Go to dark Gethsemane leads into The Third Day cantata.
The cantata tells the Easter story from the cross, through low Saturday, to finding the empty tomb, Jesus’ appearance in the locked room and giving the great commission. The work ends with a glorious finale that proclaims, “Christ is Risen, Alleluia!”
Next is Such Love, a choral setting of words from 1 John: 3. This is followed by three instrumental pieces that reflect Jonathan’s love of Celtic music.
Also included are Jonathan’s settings of the traditional Magnificat and Nunc dimittis. The Magnificat features a free-form melody sung by soprano soloist Sharon Yearsley, who soars over an exciting rhythmic, pulsing chant by the choir.
The CD closes with a Blessing based on Psalm 27.
Throughout, Jonathan’s music deftly weaves melodies around sacred words in ways that enhance and give new meaning to the text. Listeners will be drawn into the music and find their spirits uplifted.
Founded in 1976, Festival Singers of Wellington has a tradition of encouraging young performers, of bringing new music to our audiences and of always singing to the glory of God. People of the Light continues this tradition.

Enthusiastic review of Feliz Navidad Concert on Middle C
“…a thoroughly enjoyable evening’s music making, where the director had very skilfully put together a programme offering a glimpse into a whole world of South American musical tradition that most of the audience would, I imagine, have been previously quite unaware of. The concert was built around the central theme of Christmas, yet it spanned an astonishing breadth of styles, all of which the musicians took easily in their stride. The enthusiasm of both singers and players was infectious, and it caught up everyone in an evening that was a refreshing celebration of this great Christian festival.”india quality menu india queen india quiz india quarantine requirements india royale india royale age india restaurant india religion india royale kids india royale cosmetics india rupee to usd india royale twitter india sweets and spices india sweets and spices movie india stock market india standard time india states india shawn india spice house india score india time india time now india t20 india travel ban india time zone india to usa travel india travel restrictions india t20 world cup india us travel ban india us india us travel india urban dictionary india unemployment rate india us visa appointment india us flights india uk india vs new zealand india vs england india vaccination rate india vs pakistan india vs nz india visa india vs new zealand t20 2021 india vaccine india walton india world cup india westbrooks india weather india world map india world cup t20 india walton husband india women india x visa india yuridia india yahoo india youtube india yellow india yuridia tour 2021 india yaffe india yuridia carne asada india young india zip code india zodiac sign india zip code list india zindabad india zodiac india zip code number india zoo india zero covid india about afghanistan india about afghanistan situation india about in english india about in hindi india about india india about cryptocurrency india about pakistan india about 10 lines india after gandhi india after independence india after gandhi pdf india after gandhi audiobook india after ww2 india after the guptas india after imperialism india after colonialism india against corruption india against china india against england india against stupidity india against england test match india against pakistan india against propaganda tweets india against presstitutes india among us discord india among top 10 countries india among world india around country india around sea india around the world india around around india in 80 trains around india clive is misconstrued as polish around india in 80 trains pdf around india with a movie camera india as i knew it india as a name india as an emerging market india as a country india as a superpower india as a colony india as bharat book india as a continent india bottom of island at the bottom of india india top of india at paralympics india at olympics india at paralympics 2021 india at olympics 2021 india at times square india at night india at t20 world cup india at olympics 2020 india before british india before partition india before colonization india before 1947 india before durk india before and after covid india before mughals india before british rule map india behind afghan war india behind new zealand india behind bangladesh india behind kabul attack india behind threat india behind new zealand tour cancellation india behind new zealand withdrawal india behind lahore attack british india beneath the satellites island beneath india india beside countries besides india holi is also celebrated in is india beside china casio beside india india map with beside countries island beside india sea beside india east of india beside you india between england india between pakistan border india between england live score india between sri lanka india between pakistan india between china border india between afghanistan india between 1947 to 1950 india beyond 2020 challenges and opportunities india beyond 2020 challenges and opportunities essay india beyond 2020 challenges and opportunities essay writing india beyond 2020 challenges and opportunities in tamil india beyond meat india beyond 2020 ppt india beyond 2020 challenges and opportunities essay in tamil india but but india hindi meaning not india but bharat buy ps5 india india developing but defencepk amazon india buy buy iphone india midasbuy india india by lil durk india by lil durk lyrics india by religion india by design india by train india by language india by election 2021 india by state india contra fund invesco india contra fund invesco india contra fund direct growth invesco india contra fund login invesco india contra fund review invesco india contra fund value research kotak india contra fund invesco india contra fund morningstar despite india india covid despite vaccine india festival despite covid india china despite india cases rise despite lockdown india during ww2 india during covid india during the renaissance india during the cold war india during ww1 india during imperialism india during british rule map india during diwali even india even in hindi meaning india odd even rule india odd even even india bellen even india bellen samenvatting even india bellen tegenlicht except india latest news india except corona country except india india for kids india for you india for u india for you manteca india for you antioch ca
