It is well with my soul

It is well with my soul

This past Sunday, Larry decided to take what might be described as a medieval-tinged minimalism in his approach to the music. Accompanied by Charles Garinger on bass and vocals, Tatiana Friesen on violin and vocals, and Nicole Jasper on vocals, the music was offered in a very methodical and contemplative mode.

We caught some pretty nice audio on our little recording unit, and wanted to share this version of “It is well with my soul.” Composed in the 1870s by Ho­ra­tio Spaf­ford and Phil­ip Bliss, this hymn hardly counts as medieval, though here it was presented in a very contemplative vein. Sung during communion, you’ll hear the voices of the administrants as they offer the bread and wine, as well the sound of people on the creaking of the floorboards as they make their way up to receive communion.

It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

And just so you know, the image on this post is a photograph of the original lyrics written by Spafford on hotel stationary.
