What You See Is What You Get. This is a journal blog, an explore-blog, a bit of this and that blog. Sharing where the mood takes me. Perhaps it will take you too.

Menoizikul; Midweek Musicalisms

It's December and, as you may have come to expect around here, the musical options will reflect the festive season. I am going a little left of field for this year's selection (and something special for Christmas Day). 

The first offering is from the feel-good, mood-raising movie Sister Act. The hymn for Mary The Blessed Virgin is given an up-tempo vibe that is hard not to smile at. Little more to be said about it, really, except that watching this clip made me want to watch the movie all over again!

  1. Hi Yam - excellent - I'd forgotten the Alleluia part ... fun to see - while Maggie Smith has such an expressive face ... and I loved seeing Whoopi conduct her choir ... and yes like you - a film to see again. Cheers Hilary

  3. I just watched half of this movie this past week and the part I watched included this song. I love both the Sister Act movies but the first one best of all

  7. Great song - I wish our choir was capable of rocking the church like that but sadly the choirmaster is rather more traditional - and it looks like I am going to miss the carol festival this year - train strike - I wasn't singing anyway (arrived back a bit late so was signed up for a reading instead), but it is good to go to at least one carol concert before Christmas. xxx F (and Mr T)

  8. Nice! The movie doesn't seem to be available here on YouTube. I will have to look elsewhere if it's available.
