I had the privilege of capturing the congregational song at this past week’s Higher Things Crucified 2014 youth conference at Concordia University, Mequon, Wisconsin. I’m always striving to record congregational singing in a realistic way, with diction and balance. What better opportunity than a congregation of 1200+ youth, chaperones, and parents in the context of the Divine Service, all receiving the Lord’s gifts of Word and Sacrament, and responding in thanksgiving and praise. This is the first of what I hope will be many releases of the hymn singing at the conference. Be sure to subscribe to their YouTube channel. Rejoice!
