This is the stuff I was spoon-fed on as a little girl. With my father being a college choir director, particularly at a Lutheran college in the Midwest, songs to God in Latin were quite the norm. I relish this music, and it sends me heavenward.
I’ve added to my podcast, the song “Ideo Gloria in Excelsis Deo” that Dad directed from a European tour in 1962, which appeared on the album “Songs Across the Sea.” The choir you hear is the Midland Lutheran College Choir under Dad’s direction (from Fremont, NE). You can also hear how talented my dad is at bringing the soul out of a piece of music.
