On the 5th Day of Christmas: Lutheran High School Music Concert

Over at Composing My Thoughts, high school music teacher (and composer) Dale Witte posted the Christmas Concert from Winnebago Lutheran Academy in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.

WLA is an Area Lutheran High School of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS).

A highlight for me was hearing the kids rock it out to Michael W. Smith's Lux Venit/Gloria.

If you have not heard some of Dale Witte's compositions, you will find some of them on this recording, including "This Little Light of Mine" and selections from his setting of the Office of Compline - Prayer at the Close of the Day.

Coming January 10 (the Baptism of our Lord), the honors choir from the Evangelical Lutheran Synod (ELS) gives us "To Jordan's River Came the Lord."

Know of any other Lutheran high schools with postings of their choir on line, please drop a note in the comment section and it will be considered for a future post.
