Christmas Vespers from Oklahoma City University on Performance Oklahoma
Celebrating its 35th season, a Christmas Vespers is presented each year at Oklahoma City University. 250 University singers and instrumentalists gathered to offer the service, designed to acknowledge the Advent season. A collage of music, much of it from the great choral composers of this century and centuries past also includes songs and carols from many traditions; each of these works prefaced by a reading of scripture or poetry.
The program, entitled Sing God is Love, was offered on December 6th and in two services on December 7th in the Bishop W Angie Smith Chapel on the OCU campus, each concluding with the modern hymn Night of Silence sung in candlelight.
Tune in for this special seasonal broadcast at 8pm on Saturday, December 21st on Classical 88.7-1!
