Second Sunday in Lent (Year B)

When a group descends into a violent mob, something has gone wrong, but when it ascends into a choir, something has gone beautifully right. Each week, Sing For Joy brings you inspiring choral music of the church. Enjoy hearing something right about our world. Join us.
