This Week on Sing For Joy

Location: Massachusetts, USA


I really enjoy the weekly Sing for Joy radio program, and thought other choristers would too.  I don’t think its been “announced” through choralnet before, so for those of you who don’t know about it, please read on…


Sing For Joy is a radio program, produced by St. Olaf College, with a simple mission: to explore the weekly themes of Christian worship by providing the best in sacred choral music and thoughtful commentary. The musical performances eloquently "do the talking," while the concise remarks from host Pastor Bruce Benson illuminate the meaning of the texts. You can stream full programs online.

This Week on Sing For Joy
Second Sunday in Lent 
(Year C)
Faithfulness. The word makes some people think of stalwart characters like Abraham. And it made Abraham think of God. On the next Sing For Joy we’ll hear music that celebrates faithfulness. Join us.
