A Choral Christmas

Traditional Christmas Music from Tim McDonnell and the Vera Voce Choir

For Christmas 2015, the Smooth Stone Foundation commissioned a recording of original music with Dr. Timothy McDonnell for the Christmas season. We recorded an original piece by him, “Adventus,” and four other traditional choir songs. Dr. McDonnell included an original arrangement of that song on the recording. We were able to deliver CDs with the performance in time for Christmas, and they are still available if you have not received one. We are extremely happy with the music, which has been met with an enthusiastic response from listeners. With your help, we would love to make more of this beautiful music for other times of the year. What an easy way to honor our Lord and share the Gospel!

We also had videos made of the performances of two of the songs. These videos have been posted on Facebook and on YouTube. To date, these videos have been shared with others 567 times and viewed over 2,400 times in the first two weeks.
