Directed by Kris Mason

Founded in 1989 by artistic director Kris Mason, the 200 choristers of the SCC are formed, in a nurturing Christian environment, into four progressive choirs. The Training Chorus is for 7 to 9 year olds, the Intermediate choir welcomes young musicians ready to develop part-singing and more advanced vocal skills. The Performing Chorus, formed of 12-18 year-olds, performs in various venues locally and across the country and the world. The newest level is a mixed voice chamber choir, a sophisticated means for SCC's oldest singers to transition to college music programs. 22 songs, all recorded live, beginning with 5 songs by the Performing Chorus: "Domine Deus," "Weep No More," "Rise Up, My Love," "Ask the Moon" and "The World Is Full of Poetry. Six songs by the Chamber Singers, including the dramatic "The Word Was God," "Dirge for Two Veterans," the Ugandan Praise Song "Palapanda," the spiritual "Goin' Up to Glory," and "O My Luve's Like a Red, Red Rose." A nice cut by the Young Women's Chorus, " TheWater of Tyne," and the Intermediate Chorus's very nice " The Lord is My Shepherd," "The Poet Sings" and "The Drinking Gourd," are followed by the Training Chorus's sweet "Where Go the Boats, "Wind on the Hill" and "Little Talk." The choruses perform in various combinations, leading up to the lovely final cut, the Combined Choruses' "The Lord Bless You and Keep You." All songs are lightly accompanied. "A Young Poet" is a beautiful collection from Seattle's outstanding choral program for children!
