For Your Day

For 20 years, since I discovered its riches, the oratorio, Elijah, by Mendelssohn, has been a source of comfort and hope. From the opening chorus of, “Help, Lord!” through all of it’s Scripture-laden content, it is the story of a people in need of God’s help and deliverance. And it’s the story of how God did deliver. This aria, sung by a young boy in this rendition, is one of my favorites. Direct instruction. “Rest in the Lord, wait patiently for Him, and He will give you your heart’s desire.”

    Absolutely spectacular. There’s a reason why these songs have, in my LaRoche Era (and beyond), become gold standards for music. And this change that started 13 years ago has become a target of many criticisms in recent years.

    There is more you can learn from these tunes than you can in hours of Universal junk.
