Traveling Light Day 11: Be Still My Soul

My friend Leslie Householder got me tickets to the Millennial Choir and Orchestra performance tonight. I brought some friends and thoroughly enjoyed the Be Still My Soul production. The first song they performed was How Great Thou Art, and I have included a video below of their version of the song. I wish I had a recording of their version of Be Still My Soul, but it has not been released yet.

Be Still My Soul touched me profoundly. I’d played it on the piano at my mother’s funeral, so she came to mind when the song started. As I closed my eyes and let the music wash over me, a scene entered my mind of my mother arriving in heaven surrounded by concourses of angels, singing celebrating her return as she came into the presence of the Savior. Such joy filled my heart for her — a very emotional experience for me.

Here’s the video of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra performing How Great Thou Art. There’s no comparison to attending live but this gives you a taste.
