I was glad when they said to me,
“Let us go to the house of the LORD!”
Our feet have been standing
within your gates, O Jerusalem!

–Psalm 122:1-2 (ESV)

The setting of Synod 2012, Nyack College’s location overlooking the Hudson River, was majestic.  The scenery was splendid.  The fellowship was glorious.  But ask any delegate who attended the URCNA’s federation-wide meeting this June, and you’ll probably be told one thing: The most beautiful part of Synod 2012 was the singing.  Moving many to tears, the music of the week left lasting impressions on each and every attendee.

But there’s another significant aspect of the music at Synod 2012: For the first time in the history of the URCNA (to my knowledge), the sound of 250 men lifting their voices in praise to God has been professionally recorded!  Better still, all of these recordings are available for your listening on audio CD, as well as on YouTube’s online video service.  Click one of the following links to proceed:

Here’s a preview of one of the selections from synod, Psalter Hymnal number 38 from Psalm 23: “The Lord’s My Shepherd.”

As you enjoy this music, may God be glorified through the combined voices of his worshipers.
