Joy at the Air and Space Museum

The United States Air Force Band performed as a flash mob at the National Air and Space Museum on Dec. 3, 2013. Their Christmas season selection began with “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” by J.S. Bach and finished with “Joy to the World”:

One can’t help but wonder whether the top administrators at the Smithsonian were aware of this event before it occurred. Two explicit references to Jesus — the horror! If the video becomes popular enough, we may expect the ACLU to intervene with one of its deep-pockets lawsuits.

Until then, however — Joy!

  1. That was exquisite! The people who were fortunate enough to be there will remember it for the rest of their lives.

  2. I too thought that beautiful. But I wonder how much longer a gov’t funded entity will be able to perform Christian music.
    I saw Dennis Miller live last Thursday. He said he performed at a private engagement at the Air and Space Museum a few months ago and wanted to assure us that there is more there other than air and space… LOL!

  3. Goosebumps! I am so envious of those who got to be there. Beautiful message in those songs whether they meant them or not.

    God’s truth abideth still and HIS kingdom is forever.

  4. That is the way Christmas music should sound. If we are going to claim Jesus is Lord, then the music about him should be majestic. Out of tune whiners have no business recording Christmas music. It happens even in church. Last Sunday I went to the late service which is so-called contemporary. The opening hymn was “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel,” done to a beat and blues-style harmonies. It hurt, that is one of my favorite hymns and is meant to be plainsong.

    So it is not just our politics, but our entire culture that is corrupt.

  5. Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben/Jesu bleibet meine Freude–one of the most wonderful pieces of music ever penned. May there be many other “flash mobs” who do similar things!

    A happy Advent season to all.
