Time Out #34: I Walk in Danger all the Way

Please check out this week's Time Out broadcast featuring the hymn, I Walk in Danger all the Way.

Hear Southern Lutheran Kantor at the organ and Layman Dan with his golden pipes.

I will be leaving a comment about this particular hymn over in the post's comment section either tomorrow or Thursday.

Turn up the volume on this one once the music starts playing.  The lower range of the organ can be heard better with the volume turned up.

Please note that Southern Lutheran Kantor improvises the accompaniment to each verse of the hymn, taking into consideration what the hymn is saying at any given time.  This is called "text painting," and Kantor does excellent improvisations on this broadcast.


  1. Thanks for the kind words. I may have to do a blog post on my philosophy of hymn-playing, which definitely includes text painting.

  2. Hey, Kantor, This week's broadcast was particularly creative! I am looking forward to hearing selections for Lent and Holy Week.

    The passion chorales are among my favorites! Also, the TLH setting of "O Darkest Woe" has always sent chills up my spine.
