About sanctus

OK, so I'm obsessed with discovering and sharing The Bible as Music. Great composers have set some of the most important Scripture passages to the finest music. It's a rich musical heritage that, unfortunately, today's Christians often ignore. I'll continue to keep compiling here and on the companion Web site. Meanwhile, enjoy your Music!

Music selections on the playlist now span over 1000 years. You might hear familiar portions of Messiah by Handel, cantata movements by Bach, or soaring and seamless choral polyphony from the Renaissance period by composers such as Josquin Desprez and Thomas Tomkins. There's a good share of more recent compositions as well. Every piece on the playlist is accompanied by a Scripture reference in the playlist window. Send any thoughts to cantor AT
