‘Today is the Day’ CD now available
Western Territorial Youth Chorus releases its first recording.
“Today is the Day,” the debut recording from the Western Territorial Youth Chorus (TYC), features 17 selections in a variety of musical styles from gospel, to indie rock and Broadway.
Led by Matt Woods, Northwest divisional music director, the TYC includes 37 young people from throughout the territory.
“This is a great album in every respect,” said Commissioner Dick Krommenhoek, composer of “Living Fire,” the first song on the album. “For me, the absolute highlight of the album is Bob Chilcott’s arrangement of ‘God So Loved the World.’ In beautiful a capella, the message of the all-surpassing miracle of God’s love comes across in a most compelling way.”
Marty Mikles, music evangelism and worship specialist for The Salvation Army’s Southern Territory, said, “Even more impressive [than its multifaceted accompaniment] are the voices, textures, balance and blend of these young folks.”
According to Mikles, “‘Today is the Day’…is simply the cream of the crop from the youth of The Salvation Army’s Western Territory.”
