Finally wrestled a song about the conversion of Saul into a singable, SATB, gospel-style version! Try singing verse 1 (Saul’s voice) slowly and freely, then sing the second verse twice around at tempo. Enjoy!
Here’s a short refrain for Psalm 131, also suitable as a contemplative chant. Enjoy!
Bruce and a talented team of musicians are delighted to be leading music for the AGM of BC Conference of The United Church of Canada in Penticton, BC, this year! Lots of communal singing to support the meeting, plus leadership and special music from a massed choir for the Celebration of Ministry service on June 3. See you there!
When July comes, my thoughts turn to Christmas. Not for the reason you may be thinking of – trying to find an alternative family gathering time to avoid the complications of the Christmas season – but because I need to get ahead in my worship planning so I and my musical ensembles are ready in plenty of time! So if, like me, you’re working ahead, here are a few suggestions from our catalogue for Christmas songs and anthems for you to try with your community. (Many more results are available by searching for “Christmas” in the keywords search box in the sidebar.) Enjoy!
