Music Video: Inspirations on Gaudeamus partier (Hymn 200)
In place of music heard at services while our faith community is #holydistancing, St. Paul's Music Minister - Dr. Felix Eisenhauer - is creating a series of piano improvisations based on the day's hymn. These music videos are providing a welcome moment to relax and reflect during the time of COVID-19.
His most recent composition is based on Hymn 200 in the 1982 Hymnal: “Come, ye faithful, raise the strain."
You can find other videos here.
We hope you enjoy this. The people of St. Paul's love you and wish you peace.
