"Making Beautiful Music in the Mathematics Classroom" Part II     by Matt DeLong

Musical examples of this attribute of beauty can be drawn from gospel music. For example, in the culmination of Hampton's Praise His Holy Name the men, the altos, and the sopranos each sing a slightly different melody line that they eventually all sing together in a way that shows the unity in the variety of the lines. You are invited to listen to a clip of Hampton's Praise His Holy Name below.

"Praise His Holy Name" by Keith Hampton as sung by the St. Olaf Choir from their CD "Great Hymns of Faith Volume I". Used with permission from St. Olaf Records.
