I was Glad / Me Alegré Carlos Colón

I had the joy of leading a Vespers service with Mariachi Ágape of San Antonio at the Calvin Symposium of Worship. We opened with this musical setting inspired by Psalm 122. You can find the music in GIA’s bilingual hymnal, Santo/Santo/Santo. Thank you to Maestros Juan Bautista Ortiz and Isaac Ortiz for their gracious leadership. And also to Brian Hehn for the video.

Recordando a Pablo Sosa

Pablo Sosa ha partido a la eternidad este día. Justamente anoche cantábamos en Phoenix, Arizona, su emblemático canto, “El Cielo Canta Alegría” en nuestro festival bilingüe de himnos. ¡Qué se memoria sea eterna!

Pablo Sosa has entered into eternity. Precisely last night we were singing in Phoenix his emblematic song, “Heaven is Singing for Joy” at our bilingual hymn festival. May his memory be eternal!

O Gladsome Light – Evening Prayer

Greek hymn, Phos Hilaron, an evening prayer of the Early Church.

Alegre Luz de la santa gloria del eterno Padre, bendito Cristo Jesús./ En el horizonte vemos ya ponerse el sol y admiramos el fulgor del ocaso./ Alabamos al Padre, al Hijo y al Paracleto…

O Gladsome Light of the holy glory,  of the immortal Father, Heavenly Blessed Jesus Christ…

The congregational version is in GIA’s bilingual hymnal. You can find the choral version here.
