Your Sunday Hymn: Ubi Caritas

“Ubi Caritas” (Ola Gjeilo), sung by The CWU Chamber Choir, Gary Weidenaar, director.

In mid-April, 2011, composer Ola Gjeilo spent 3 days on the Central Washington University Campus to join the choir in recording 3 of his pieces, (the teaser/trailer URL is found below)This performance of Gjeilo’s “Ubi Caritas” is from that session, following a rendition in which the composer joined the choir and improvised an accompaniment (URL below). In this video the choir sings the piece in its published (unaccompanied) version.

Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est

(Where charity and love are, there is God)
