ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Selections on this album were taken from the six choral albums recorded since 2003. To hear more tracks from those recordings you can go online to find the titles to complete your library.

We are a group of 40 singers of Anabaptist background who come from ten states and a province to sing acapella music. We rehearse over a long weekend in the spring and then reconvene for a tour later in the summer. As a volunteer choir we each contribute from our own finances to be part of the choir and tour. We have toured in the US, Canada, and overseas.

Oasis Chorale Mission Statement

... 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. It is our intent 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.

We intend that our singers will...
be students in a mobile choral classroom
move toward a mature understanding of the arts and music in the Kingdom
develop and give their gifts with openness and humility
develop friendships with others of similar interests

For our audiences, we hope to...
invite worship of Jesus Christ
provide moments of refreshment and reflection
be a catalyst for exploring the role of the arts in the Kingdom

Repertoire will include a variety of genres. Our intention is that part of our repertoire will be easily accessible to singers and audiences, and part of our repertoire will be stretching.

In rehearsal, there seems to be a natural progression from learning pitches and rhythms, to learning sensitive and accurate musical interpretation, to actually understanding a piece of music and how it relates to the rest of life. It is at this final stage that music most effectively functions as a lens through which to perceive God, and as a medium through which to praise Him. Completing this progression is time-consuming and intense, but we are committed to not aborting the process.
