Songs of Inspiration


From the album cover:

Bethany Nazarene College has for more than fifty years emphasized character, culture, Christ… and choral music. The college music program is epitomized in its a cappella choir. It annually tours the college educational zone, visiting churches singing classical, spiritual, and sacred music. This record is from the choir’s sacred selections, four of which were written and composed by Lester L. Dunn, chairman of the Fine Arts Division and the choir’s director. The a cappella group, through the years, has appeared in many churches, municipal auditoriums, and on radio and television. It has sung for each General Assembly of the Church of the Nazarene since 1948.
