Voices only: At singing camp, ‘We are marching in the light of God’


Welcome to Voices-only.

This weekly online feature highlights the best a cappella videos that come across our eyes — and ears — on the web.

We are so glad Stan Bryan shared this video with us. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

This group is part of the summer singing camp that takes place each year in Ukraine. Here they sing “Siyahamba,” a South African hymn, in English, Zulu, Russian and Ukrainian.

Bryan is a rancher in northeastern Oklahoma who preaches for a small Church of Christ in Cherryvale, Kan., and makes regular trips to Ukraine to coordinate the singing camps. Erik Tryggestad visited the camp in 2015 and wrote about it in the context of the conflict in eastern Ukraine. Many of the singers were refugees from that troubled region, which remains under the control of pro-Russian separatists four years later.

In an email to The Christian Chronicle, Stan Bryan said, “We have been conducting these singing schools in Ukraine for about 10 years, and people become more and more proficient in singing.”

Do you have a video you would like us to consider for an upcoming Voices-only post? We would love to see it.

Post your a cappella recordings to YouTube and send us the links. Or recommend your favorite videos in the comments section.
