MUSIC

This page is about the actual music we use, particularly the hymns. We like to have a variety of genre, including jazz, classical, choral, folk, popular, country, mixed, and international. Check our calendar for special music programs and join us.

Here are some links to websites and actual music clips of our songs for you to hear:

SPIRIT OF LIFE is sung at most services. Children also interpret the song in sign language most Sundays. A video demonstration of a child signing it is on YouTube here with the choir singing it, an explanation of why we sign it here (also read the description), and instructions on how to sign it here – permission was given by composer Carolyn McDade.

LET IT BE A DANCE is one of our favorite hymns. Ric Masten is the composer and you can listen to it on this site, which includes “Learn to follow, learn to lead, Feel the rhythm, fill the need. To reap the harvest, plant the seed. And let it be a dance.”

See videos of our members singing songs from our YouTube channelYou Are Theist, I Am Humanist is a parody satire used at our annual Fellowship Dinner.

Listen to (and watch if desired) a playlist of UU Music that we put together on YouTube.

We have trios and special choral groups that sing on occasion. If you would like to participate, contact the Music Committee. It’s fun! Come make joyful noise!

The UU Musicians Network gives you resources to more music.

Listen to UUPlink internet radio for more examples of UU music.
