Recently, I was stumbling around on Youtube, hoping to find something of worth that I could listen to while I write summaries for various articles and whatnot. It didn't occur to me that I was about to stumble upon the greatest song I have ever heard of. I'm a music major, meaning that I am incredibly picky when it comes to my music. This song, however, changed my perspective of barbershop style music forever.
Written by George Matheson and arranged by David Phelps, "Oh love, That Will not let me Go," Soon became the iconic song of the Westminster Chorus. Being performed in many venues and winning the hearts of thousands via Youtube, the chorus soon became internet famous and went on to win internationals. What makes this video stand out more than the rest of them, is that this is performed in a cathedral in Germany. The acoustics of the pure harmony rings in your headphones and brings a relaxing feeling all over your body. If that isn't amazing, I don't know what is. For all of you that are music junkies and for those of you that enjoy listening to close harmony barbershop, I strongly recommend this video to you. Please, do yourself a favor and give it a view, so that way people know that even though this world has become too fast paced for the arts, that some of us are still slowing down and giving the harmony a chance to take them over.
