Encore, ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’ (Fountainview Academy)

I just felt like hearing O Come All Ye Faithful one more time. And it’s been years and years since I had anything like a scenic train ride. This is the Kettle Valley Railway in British Columbia, with the Fountainview Orchestra aboard.

By Request, ‘In the Bleak Midwinter’ (Fountainview)

Lydia asked for this one, new from Fountainview Academy–In the Bleak Midwinter. (But to me the snow on the trees looks beautiful.)

‘Gloria in Excelsis Deo’

Well, no one has requested a hymn for today, so I had to go out and find one.

This is Gloria in Excelsis Deo, by the students at Fountainview Academy–and what do you think of that snowscape?

By Request, ‘See Amid the Winter’s Snow’

What a creative setting for a Christmas hymn!

Requested by Lydia–See Amid the Winter’s Snow, performed, in a real snow-scape, by the kids at Fountainview Academy.

‘Mary, Did You Know?’

I’ve never heard this carol sung so beautifully as this–Mary, Did You Know?, performed by the students at Fountainview Academy. They even managed to stage it in a stable.

By Request, ‘Joy to the World’ (Fountainview)

Lydia asked for this a couple days ago, but I got my signals crossed–so it’s late. Joy to the World, performed, in a most creative setting, by the students at Fountainview Academy.

‘O Come, All Ye Faithful’ (Fountainview)

The students at Fountainview Academy always have such interesting settings for their hymns. This is O Come, All Ye Faithful, aboard the Kettle Valley Railway in Summerland, British Columbia.

‘Near to the Heart of God’

Thanksgiving week is here–at let’s get it started with Near to the Heart of God, sung by the students at Fountainview Academy.

Bonus Hymn: ‘Hold Fast Till I Come’

I’d never heard this beautiful hymn before, until just now, and I decided I liked it way too much to hold it off till tomorrow. I’m not going to run out of hymns to post, am I?

Hold Fast Till I Come, sung by the students at Fountainview Academy, against a backdrop of God’s handiwork–we can’t ask for more.


‘To God Be the Glory’

This is one of my favorite hymns–To God Be the Glory, by Fanny Crosby (1875)–but I don’t think I’ve posted this rendition of it before, by the students at Fountainview Academy. Praise the Lord, the God of our salvation.
