ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
For most of us, our birth was hailed with exclamations of joy. For most of us, our death will be mourned. For all of us, in between those boundaries lies a span which we walk moment by moment, now lit with rays of joy, now enshrouded in shades of mourning.

What does it all mean, this brief journey between birth and death, this “inch or two of time”?

We will make no sense of it at all if we do not pause to reckon with the “Maker of our mortal frame.” Without some understanding of Him, we are indeed “but dust and foolish vanity in all our flower and prime.” Hearing and heeding Him, we catch whispers of hope in a troubled world.

May these songs grant you keener sight and deeper insight, and enable you to give thanks to the Lord who is our help and our shield. May they be for you a hope and a healing. May the God who guided Israel on their great salvation journey guide your feet and be with you on that same great journey.

–Wendell Nisly


Oasis Chorale Mission Statement and Values

. . . inviting singer and listener to thoughtful worship through artistic choral music sung skillfully.

Worship through song requires a heart tuned to God and a disciplined mind that is attentive to both words and music. Oasis Chorale is committed to nurturing this process in both singers and listeners.

Artistic music frequently challenges both singers and listeners. A voice does not automatically make a great singer, nor ears a thoughtful listener; we believe artistic music requires investment to be sung well and to be fully understood and appreciated. Oasis Chorale intends to help singers and audiences move one step forward in these skills.

This mission entails risk. Beauty is powerful and rightly delights and draws us. But if beautiful music draws our focus more toward the music or the musician than to God, it has failed its purpose. God is the source and essence of beauty; music is an expression of His beauty. Our intent is that our music be a powerful reflection of God’s excellent beauty. Yet we maintain that musical excellence is not an end in itself, but is a lens through which we perceive, understand, and relate to God.


Core Values
Holiness • Artistry • Community • Development

Holiness: The singer is not just lungs and larynx, but a whole person—spirit, soul, and body. We were created in the image of God to be God-aware in all our desires and all our activity. That orientation has been deeply twisted to hunger for our own glory. But He has not abandoned us, and is now reconciling us through Christ to Himself, setting us and all creation to rights. Our seeking and our singing should reflect the beauty and the goodness of His redeeming work on His good earth.

Artistry: Inspired by a God who declared, “It is very good!” we are committed to choral music done to the best of our ability. In our musical and visual presentations, we strive to emulate the excellence of God’s creative activity and thus reflect His glory to Himself.

Community: We strive to create a wholesome environment for our singers to connect with and sharpen each other. In concert, we do not want simply to deposit our music on the stage, but to have a mutually enriching exchange between singers and listeners.

Development: We help our singers to grow spiritually, philosophically, and musically, and equip them to better contribute in these areas in their home communities. We want our audiences to leave our concerts with a fresh glimpse of the beauty and goodness of God through the song He has given us.

Who is Oasis Chorale?

We are a group of 36 singers who gather from various parts of the US and Canada. All of us volunteer our time and pay our way to be a part of the choir and tour. We rehearse over a long weekend in the spring, and then gather for a tour later in the summer. We’ve toured overseas, across the US, and in Canada. Oasis Chorale is constantly seeking fresh ways in which choral musicians can speak into our world.
