God is so wonderful, He just so arranged my evening so that I could go to the concert put on by the Flint Chorus. The first songs were mostly minor and were very moving. The choir sounded so full and powerful yet was quiet and controlled, energy held in control.

The Flint youth choir sang, what beautiful children! One little boy was a joy to watch as his face struggled to find a happy medium between serious and smiling. My favorite was the song Benedictus, where the tune started out simple and innocent with the children singing then the adult choir came in, filling it out and maturing the theme to its fullest height – Hosanna in the highest!

The best song was the Angus Dei. I just closed my eyes and let the music swirl around me, the sopranos lifted my thoughts and spirits while the bass vibrated through my whole being, tenors and altos filling in-between. As the song reached its peak my heart started beating faster, my breath came in short gasps, the music was so beautiful it hurt – I wonder if that’s what it will be like in heaven. The words were “lamb of God…have mercy on us”, I envisioned myself kneeling before the throne of God, pleading for His mercy, tears welled in my eyes. “Lamb of God, you who takes away the sins of the world, grant us peace.”
