Rev. Brian Hamer, active duty Navy Chaplain and author of the Lifted Voice column in Around the Word: Theology for the Curious Christian, joins Andy and Sarah to talk about Sacred Music for Child-Loss Month, including why sacred music is meaningful when addressing the topic of child loss, his encounter with the concept of the unborn Christ child, and three pieces of music that are especially helpful in this conversation.
These pieces are:
James MacMillan: A Child’s Prayer | Seattle Pro Musica youtu.be/tIgDUVUbOng?feature=shared
Maurice Duruflé: Requiem, Op. 9: Kyrie youtu.be/cauEGSW73hg?feature=shared
