Fr. Austin Dominic Litke, O.P., Fr. Bob Koopman, O.S.B., & Leah Sedlacek perform a new arrangement of the beautiful 17th century hymn, "The Call", composed by George Herbert and later made famous by Ralph Vaughan Williams. This arrangement is by Edward A. David, a graduate of the piano performance program at NYU Steinhardt.
The video was shot by Blackfriars Media, which is the media division of the Dominican Province of St. Joseph. The crew is composed of graduates of the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU: Joshua Vargas, John Fisher, and Michael Crommett.
Inspired by Pope Francis's call for Catholics to take to the streets in sharing the Gospel, Blackfriar Films hit New York City for this project. Scenes were filmed at the Brooklyn Bridge, Our Lady of Good Counsel parish, Grand Central Station, Columbus Circle, and the Staten Island ferry.
