The Sabbath and Worship Music
Church (PMC) last Saturday afternoon, November 10, 2007. The actual recording was done at PMC three days earlier on Wednesday, November 7, to respect the sacredness of the Sabbath. There is a lot of work involved in setting up the cameras and the audio recording equipment for a Sabbath afternoon video recording of the sacred concert. In good conscience I felt that this should be avoided on the Sabbath.
The recording went well and the editing process has already been completed. This means that the new DVD with 11 sacred songs sang by Cristina with her powerful and passionate soprano voice, is ready for distribution. Information on how to order the new DVD is given below.
Being the sponsor of the video taping of Cristina’s Sacred Con- cert, I was privileged to hear her singing twice, first Wednesday evening for the professional recordings, and then on Saturday afternoon for the community Sacred Concert. Truly I can say that Cristina powerful and passionate singing deeply tourched my heart. A university administrator sitting next to me on Sabbath afternoon told me: “I have never been so deeply moved by a sacred concert like this evening.”
The recording represents months of rehersals and spiritual prepara- tion. After lunch last Sabbath, Cristina told my wife and I, “I need to left alone for one hour to pray and prepare myself mentally and spiritually to interpret the message of each song I will sing.” Her spiritual preparation was most evident during her performance as one could sense how deeply she felt the message of each sacred song she sang.

Who is Cristina Piccardi?
In the previous newsletters I mentioned that I officially met Cris- tina Piccardi on October 6, 2007 at Andrews University Pioneer Memo- rial Church, where she sang three times during the communion service. Her background is unique. she was born in 1981 in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. Already as a teenager she loved to sing about the love of God in churches, schools, and public events.
