Psalm 5 Performed by DCMW Faculty

This new musical setting of Psalm 5 by craig buhler conveys the message as it is experienced by those who know what the blues feel like. Hannah Jensen sings it stunningly accompanied by craig buhler (sax), the late Bob Woll (piano), Gary McRoberts (organ), Taylor Ackley (bass), and Bryan Taylor (drums).  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mv1KqnNEoZc&feature=youtu.be

Worshiping Jesus Continues

We recently lost a consummate musician, an anointed worship leader, an exemplary family man, and a close friend.  Bob Woll went home to be with Jesus after a mighty struggle with cancer.  He was my pianist of choice for 20 years in both the jazz and worship genres and a trusted confidant.  In this photo, we worship Jesus while paying tribute to this dear saint.

Video Clips From 2017 DCMW Faculty Concert: 1. The Blessing

In NUMBERS 6:24–26, the LORD instructs Moses to teach Aaron and his sons the blessing with which they are to bless the Israelites.  Craig composed a melody for this blessing which is often used at the closing of Sunday church service.  The song is the 7th cut on Craig’s CD “Renewed Hope.”  This is a live performance by the faculty of the 2017 Dungeness Christian Music Workshop.
