This is the Baylor Men's Choir's interpretation of the anthem, "The Prayer of the Children." It is an evocative and emotional rendering of an anthem about the horrors of war as felt in particular by children.
As a member of Gabriel's Chorus, the men's choir at Glen Cairn United Church, I took part in singing this anthem today during the morning service. The congregation was hushed and spell bound, listening to every word. This was the first time the Chorus sang unaccompanied. Thanks go to our choir director, Peter Bishop, for challenging us to learn this piece, and to Lori Prowse our accompanist during practices, and to the dedication of the other eight members of the chorus who showed what heights we can accomplish.
"Can you hear the prayers of the children?"
