We are a group of ordinary people, gripped by God's grace, who desire to Acclaim Jesus Christ and His faithfulness in our lives through the gift of song.
The Acclamation Chorale is a group of singers who come from the United States and Canada.
The vision behind our albums are twofold: 1. To proclaim God's goodness in the lives of His children, encouraging you to worship with us. 2. The sale of the CD is used as a fundraiser for the mission of Impressions Cafe in Listowel, Ontario, Canada. So why Spirituals? Hindered by the inability to read and write, slaves brought to America passed down stories from the Bible orally through song; they also encouraged each other by singing of their joy, pain, and hope. Though the slaves were beaten and bruised as they labored in the scorching sun, the heart-wails of song wafted over the fields by day and sounded from the cabins by night. Their very existence of bondage in entirety created an overwhelming longing for deliverance. Through the generations, they crafted songs that spoke of The Promised Land, where they would one day be liberated. Today these songs still speak directly to the heart of many listeners, transporting them back to the fields, the sweat, the whippings, the loss of family, the deep groanings as muscles cramped, and hearts moaned. They speak of how these people held on, planted firmly in their faith of the Master Who promised them eternal freedom, and bound no longer by chains, but praising Him forever in wholeness of body, soul and spirit. They speak of His goodness prevailing in their agony, and His love giving them strength to sing passionately of their triumphs and victories! The Acclamation Chorale singers have experienced joys and sufferings; we have seen the hand of God at work in our lives when we cry to Him for deliverance; we have experienced His overwhelming grace in the midst of trials. These songs echo our journeys too.
Join us, as together we acclaim the name of Jesus!
