Review: This arrangement of 'Kyrie/Kum Ba Ya' can be used for many voicing combinations. Cue-sized notes are included to create other voicing possibilities from this two-part mixed arrangement. Sung a cappella, Kyrie/Kum Ba Ya joins the beautiful simplicity of chant using traditional Latin text with the well-knownl African folk song Kum Ba Ya. Greg Gilpin's original gospel chorals are solid-gold. 'Keep on Following the Star' is no exception. His new original work for Christmas begins with an infectious chorus full of gospel harmonies and style. The verses are sung with an optional solo above gospel 'oo's.' Verse and chorus are repetitive, allowing for quick learning. Add a key change, followed by a hot a cappella with hand claps section, finish with a rousing ending and you've got a new hit for your concert this December. 'Think On Me' - Never has this art song by Alicia Ann Scott sounded so beautiful and chorally arranged so effectively than now. Heart-wrenching harmonies interpret the touching text and the almost hymn-like pianissimo, a cappella verse adds to the dynamic touches that build in the last refrain and fade away with the last lyric. A choral that will teach your students expression. There are so many options for 'All Through The Night' by Greg Gilpin. Optional lyrics also make it suitable for general use. The traditional lyrics are set to new music with a soft calypso feel. The piece may be sung a cappella or with optional piano accompaniment with the addition of low and high hand-drum parts. Simple part writing, solos, and several key changes create a work that will be easy to learn and fun to practice and perform. Choirs of all ages will enjoy this one!
Songlist: Kyrie/Kum Ba Ya, Keep On Following The Star, Think On Me, All Through The Night
