Here is our next YouTube choral music offering – O Jesu Christe – from our St. Columba June 4th 2022 Spring Concert.
One of my personal favourites, I have been singing the alto part in this song for easily 20 years 😛
You may have noticed, we are singing and rehearsing with masks on still. Many of our members are seniors and some are immunocompromised, so we made the decision to continue masking.
The amazing thing is, I actually got used to singing through a mask, in fact, it helped with my allergies (churches can be very musty)
Bonus –  the sound is just as good! I know, wierd, eh?
