Choir randomly discovers beautiful acoustics at zoo’s Reptile House (video)

From the YouTube page:

The choir from Harding University in Arkansas came to visit the Cincinnati Zoo. A few of them wandered into the Reptile House, which is also the oldest zoo building in the country. They noticed the acoustics and texted the rest of the choir to join them. Then this happened.

    I know this song as “Valley To Pray” from Arlo Guthrie’s 1971-72 LP ‘Washington County’.

    …this abstract is only a little frighting…

    …for sure; that saying “peace” is relative, ie”Peace Keepers”, but theres truly a global amount of negligence with something so diabolically deadly to so much life.

    One of the suggested related videos after watching this one is one of the DD Robertson clan speaking to the school. Of course I didn’t watch it.

    How funny we thought nuclear armageddon would be brought upon by bombs and intent, and not peace and negligence.

  10. Drew2u says:

    That is simply a beautiful arrangement. :)
    Anyone know which one this is?
