“My Song is Love Unknown”

A Concordia Seminary, St. Louis choir, led by Director of Music Arts Dr. James F. Marriott, sings “My Song Is Love Unknown” (Lutheran Service Book 430) Feb. 9, 2021, from the balcony of the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus. This particular setting is arranged by Dr. Marriott himself.

About this hymn, Dr. Marriott writes:

Our series of hymn recordings celebrates the rich intersection of music and theology in our Lutheran heritage. My Song is Love Unknown depicts the whole passion scene for us, that we, the loveless, might know the full love of God through His Son Jesus Christ. Seminarian Christian Einertson sings the haunting fourth stanza as a solo, highlighting the dramatic nature of this rich text. We invite you to meditate on the text with us (LSB 430), or even to sing along as you listen!
