A YouTube Choir and Revelation 7

American composer and conductor Eric Whitacre has spliced together nearly 250 videos of men and women singing “Lux Aurumque” in their respective parts.   He sent out the music, auditioned the singers, narrowed down his finalists from the hundreds of submitted videos, then compiled it all together to form this “virtual choir.”


Like others around the blogosphere, as I watched, I thought of this scene from Revelation 7:9-12:

After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”   And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying, “Amen!   Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever!   Amen.”
