Xmas Cracker 1: A clarinet hymn beneath the surface of the earth

Our first seasonal offering features the clarinet class at Shenandoah Conservatory playing the Icelandic Hymn Heyr Himna Smiður deep down in Virginia’s famous Luray Caverns. If feels like the end of the world. You will want to hear it again.




Here’s the standard choral version.


h/t: Garrick Zoeter.

You may recall this train station version which was last year’s Christmas sensation.

  • This was the brainchild of Shenandoah University Professor Garrick Zoeter. Garrick (my son) often took his friends to Luray Caverns when they came to visit, and I guess it was just a matter of time before he took his clarinet students there, too. I am glad he did because they sound great.
