College of Medicine Catholic Students’ choir, popularly known as COM-CSO choir on campus, is scheduled to launch its first ever 10-track album entitled Gawo La Cholowa Changa.
Vice chairperson for the choir Symon Nayupe says the event will take place in Chinyonga, Blantyre at St Anthony Catholic church, an outstation of Limbe Cathedral September 29.
He says other choirs to be present at launch include St Anthony choir, Matamando Women’s choir and St Jude choir which will host the College of Medicine Catholic choir.
Nayupe says also on the list are College of Medicine CCAP Students Organization’s choir (COM-CCAPSO Choir), St Cecilia from Holy Ghost Parish in Ndirande, St Benedict Choir from St Pius Parish, St Lawrence Chemussa, St Montfort C.I. English choir, St Montfort C.I. main choir, and St Padre Pio Choir from Bangwe.
“The album, which bears its title from Psalm 16: 5 which says: Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure, has ten hymns. It carries two Chichewa hymns from the Catholic Buku La Nyimbo ndi Mapemphero, four English hymns from ‘Celebration Hymnal for Everyone’ and four Chichewa hymns which were composed by members of the choir,” he says.
The hymns carry messages on how God takes good care of His children(believers), how the children(believers) depend on and revere Him and how the believers eventually become ‘Salt for the Earth’.
“It also spreads a message of seeking the kingdom and righteousness of God first, and continues to speak of the suffering of Jesus (Masautso a Yesu), his crucifixion and the subsequent triumphant rising,” says Nayupe.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
