The Glorious Voices of Cantus


We heard a marvelous concert at the Alberta Bair Theatre this evening. The crowd was a little thin on the ground but they were extra enthusiastic to make up for their numbers. Cantus is a male vocal ensemble from the Twin Cities. If they come near you, drive a long way to hear them.

At times you forgot they were singing. They were just pure beautiful music. Maybe that is what we humans were originally created to do. To sing that is. Wasn't that how Aslan created things, by singing them into existence? So then, perhaps choosing not to sing was the Original Sin. But a few have regained or maybe retained, who knows, the ability to sing and this group shares in that loveliness. My wife Carol thought surely they were all Lutherans.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
