His Eye Is On the Sparrow

Music by Charles H. Gabriel, Lyrics by Civilla D. Martin

His Eye Is on the Sparrow" is a Gospel hymn written in 1905 by lyricist Civilla D. Martin and composer Charles H. Gabriel. It is most associated with actress-singer Ethel Waters who used the title for her autobiography. Mahalia Jackson's recording of the song was honored with the Grammy Hall of Fame Award in 2010. Sometimes it was sung with the slightly altered title "His Eye is on the Tiny Bird" and this version was recorded by actress Violet Carson in 1972.

    Release Date: 1905

BYU Singers : My Redeemer Lives

In 2003 the veteran, prolific BYU Singers were preparing for a concert tour of Ukraine when war in the Middle East caused its cancellation. They shifted their energies to this new recording, their 4th on the Tantara label, which includes two Ukrainian choral treasures, Dimitri Bortnyansky's "Cherubic Hymn" and Konstantin Shvedov's "To Thee We Sing (Tebe Poyem)." Some other favorites are the title tune, "His Eye Is on the Sparrow," Robert Starer's soaring "Give Thanks unto the Lord," the energetic "Praise the Name of the Lord (Laudate Nomen)," the hymn "Nearer My God to Thee," and Hofford/Millard's sweet "Abide with Me; 'Tis Eventide." Some light piano accompaniment. A beautiful, deeply-felt collection!

Eclipse 6 : Grateful Praise : 00  1 CD : 4999113

Eclipse 6 : Grateful Praise

"Grateful Praise" is the 5th excellent CD from Utah-based Contemporary Christian sextet Eclipse. We have been watching Eclipse with great interest since their dynamic performances at the Harmony Sweeps Finals in 2001 and 2002, winners of the Denver and Pacific NW Regionals. The group's trademark sound features tight, smooth harmonies, solid vocal percussion, complex, beautiful arrangements and high energy. Innovative covers of three traditional tunes in the public domain, "All Creatures of Our God and King," begin the album, followed by the touching "Mercy's Arms," "God is Love," the lovely and familiar "Evening Prayer," "Open Thou My Soul," "Go With Me," one of our favorite hymns, "Be Still My Soul," and it finishes strongly with a pair of fine originals, "I Believe in Christ" and "Let The Words." Each note is true here, each arrangement effortlessly perfect. The full color liner notes are as beautiful as any we have ever seen. An album that inspires and lifts us up, on many levels!

Songlist: All Creatures of Our God and King, His Eye Is On The Sparrow, For The Beauty of The Earth, Mercy's Arms, God Is Love, Evening Prayer, Open Thou Mine Eyes, Go With Me, Be Still, My Soul, I Believe In Christ, Let The Words

Fairfield Four : Best Of 1946 - 1953

This collection represents selected tracks from their singles released from the start of their recording career in 1946 through to 1953, when there was a significant change in the group's line up with the departure of Rev. Sam McCarary. This is a fine showcase for their distinctive style and represents some of the best and most popular gospel music of that era, which was a heyday for the genre, as with other groups the gospel groups paved the way for the doo wop boom of the 50's. This is classic stuff!

Songlist: Who Stole My Old Shoes , Better Leave That Liar Alone , Don't You Want to Join That Number , Where Shall I Go, Don't Let Nobody Turn You Around , Standing in the Safety Zone, When I Get Up in Heaven, Amazing Grace, Canaan Land, I'm Going to Live the Life I Sing About, You've Got to Move, Just One Moment in God's Kingdom, Dig a Little Deeper in God's Love, Just a Little Talk with Jesus, Lift Him Up, Three of Level, Jesus Met the Woman at the Well, Ezekiel, Roll All Burdens Away, Saviour Don't Pass Me By, In the Wilderness, Let Me Tell You About Jesus, In the Upper Room, I'll Tell the World , Don't Drive Your Children Away, Does Jesus Care, Nobody to Depend On, No Room at the Inn, On My Journey Now, Love Is Like a River, and more

III Of A Kind : Back To The Drawing Board : 00  1 CD

III Of A Kind : Back To The Drawing Board

Fresh from their surprising win at the Harmony Sweepstakes Bay Area Regional, Filipino group III of a Kind brings us an equally surprising first CD. Deeply spiritual singers Gelo Francisco, Edward Granadosin and Annie Nepomuceno, one of few three-singer a cappella groups we have encountered, did not pull off their win because of flashy costumes and knock-your-socks-off dance moves. They did it with powerful harmonies and eye-opening music, both abundantly present on "Back To The Drawing Board." Seven songs: the Hanson's "MMMBop," Sting's "If You Love Somebody (Set Them Free)," Lennon/McCartney's "We Can Work It Out," "Where Is Love," "The Prayer," "His Eye Is On The Sparrow" and "Prayer of St. Francis." The first four songs are a cappella, the last three are accompanied-but beautiful harmonies and soulful singing throughout. Back To The Drawing Board? From their performance in SF and this CD, we think it's more like On To Triumph!

Songlist: Singin' a cappella, MMMBop, If You Love Somebody, We Can Work It Out, Where Is Love?, Other Songs... not-apella, The Prayer, His Eye Is On The Sparrow, Prayer of St. Francis

As a result, both the choir and Bryan captured the 1996-97 Stellar nominations in the same category for Children's Performance of the Year.

State Line Grocery : Paper or Plastic? : 00  1 CD

State Line Grocery : Paper or Plastic?

As a group, Georgia-based State Line Grocery is fairly new on the Barbershop scene, having been formed in July of 2003. They immediately won the 2003 Dixie District Quartet Championship in the fall, and went on to qualify for the Barbershop Harmony Society's Internationals in Louisville in 2004. They placed 11th at the 2005 BHS International competition in Salt Lake City, and recently placed 4th at the Denver Internationals! Baritone Heath, Bass Drew, Lead Tim and Tenor Dylan, all longtime BHS veterans and district champs, are turning a lot of heads with the kind of drum-tight harmonies, sweet leads and ringing chords we find on "Paper." 14 songs, some favorites are "The Glory of Love," "Everything Old is New Again," Randy Newman's poignant "When She Loved Me," "Too Marvelous for Words," "On the Sunny Side of the Street," "His Eye is On the Sparrow" and Hank Williams' "I Saw the Light." Beautiful stuff from fast-rising, talented SLG!
