The Moravian Music Foundation preserves, shares, and celebrates Moravian musical culture.
Instead of a lot of words from me this week, I offer a gift of music … a live performance from the 2017 Moravian Music Festival. You hear Morgenstern auf finstre Nacht (Morning Star in Darkest Night) by Ernst Julius Otto (1804-1877). Performers are Jill Bowen Gardner, soprano; Erik Salzwedel, trombone; Joni Roos and Rhonda Burnham, violins; Shelly Bareham Matthews, viola; and Maureen May, cello.
May your remembrance of the birth of Jesus bring blessing and peace, and a renewed commitment to do justly, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.
