Jubilee Octet

A groups of singers in my last congregation, Jubilee Canadian Reformed in Ottawa, have recently formed an octet called, the Jubilee Octet. They are singing some of the Genevan arrangements of the Psalms a la Claude Goudimel's harmonization of the Genevans. In some cases the melody is in the soprano while in others it is in the tenor. Goudimel produced both for all 150 Psalms. Go to play list.

Remembering

On this Remembrance Day I am thinking of my paternal grandfather, Taeke van Popta, who died of dysentery in Concentration Camp Sachsenhausen, near Berlin, three months before the end of the war. He had been active in the Dutch resistance against the Nazis. You can read his whole story here.
