That Eternal Day (2010)

“Every cut here touches and moves, surprises and delights us…one of the best of the year!”

“…the Cantus recording offers many satisfactions, none greater than a touching, ineffably simple performance of “The 23rd Psalm (dedicated to my mother)” by Bobby McFerrin.”
– The New York Times

“That Eternal Day” is a wonderful collection of American sacred music. Including audience favorites “There’s a Meeting Here Tonight,” “Wanting Memories,” and Bobby McFerrin’s “The 23rd Psalm (dedicated to my mother),” this program of music is emotionally invigorating and musically fulfilling. New arrangements of “Keep Your Lamps,” “Sweet By and By,” and “Simple Gifts” alongside pieces by William Billings, Moses Hogan, and Paul Manz are a comfort to the soul.
