Two selections from a CD recorded by the Samford University A Cappella Choir received national exposure on the Nov. 5 broadcast of a syndicated program of sacred music.

JOY!, a program produced by KFUO-FM in St. Louis, Mo., and syndicated to more than 60 radio stations, featured "My God Is So High" (arr. Moses Hogan) and "He's Got the Whole World" (arr. Ray Liebau). The pieces are from the choir's CD, "O Magnum Mysterium: The Life of Jesus in Choral Music."

"O Magnum Mysterium" includes repertoire performed by the choir on its 2000 spring tour and home concert. Samford School of Music Dean Dr. Milburn Price conducts the 66-member choir.
