I could not resist not posting this video here. The life and work of Bishop Samuel David has always been an interesting riddle that I have been unfolding slowly through bits and pieces of research from here and there. I would have to leave that though to another post when I have collected more details.
For now, I am happy to give you this track from an album the Bishop recorded in Richmond, Indiana at the historical Gennett Records studio. This came as a great surprise to me having lived for four years in Richmond, Indiana.
On this album Bishop Samuel is accompanied by Qanoun. I read somewhere that he played the Qanoun, but I am not sure if it is him playing the Qanoun in this album.
This track is for Bishop Samuel chanting the wedding service Bible reading about the Marriage at Qana (John 2:1-11). And he really takes him time … Enjoy 🙂
