Spiritual David

Since this begins Holy Week, what better way to get into a spiritual frame of mind than with David singing “Be Still My Soul”? (‘Member this one?)

  1. Love this one also

    David singing “How Great Thou Art” a cappella 4/4 09

    just audio……..

  2. Oh, I remember “Be still my soul”. There was a huge buzz here in Finland when that video appeared, because the song is actually composed by a famous Finnish composer, Jean Sibelius, and the original name is “Finlandia”. The song is our national treasure, and there was, in fact, discussion about changing our National Anthem “Maamme” (means “our land”) to Finlandia, since Estonia has the same anthem as we do, and some Finns wanted a more personal one.

    Anyways, sorry to bore you with my history class, lol. But yeah, I love David singing anything, really, and I´d LOVE to play him the original Finnish hymn and hear what he thinks about it 🙂

    • Thanks for the background info on “Be Still My Soul” – very interesting!

      • Here is the original arrangement – starts off pretty heavy, because it kinda tells a story about a small country trying to fight for it´s people´s independence. The peaceful ending means that the war is over.

        Here´s the part that David sings, in Finnish:

  3. I love Sibelius’s “Valse Triste”:

  4. Hello Gorgeous!
