A Music List

For those music buffs out there who are interested, here is the list of the anthems the adult choir is working on this week, for our concert on Friday evening:

Christ Is Arisen, by Kenneth Jennings
Lamb of God, by John Carter (very nice - gorgeous arrangement and part mixing)
Lift High the Cross, by Kitchin & Newbolt
Were You There, by Ruth Artman (I may be having a solo in this piece)
Surely He hath Borne Our Griefs, by Karl Graun (beautiful, plaintive a cappella)
Ah, Holy Jesus, by John Ferguson
O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing, by John Ness Beck
Crown Him with Many Crowns, by Walter Pelz

As you can see, we are doing plain old hymn arrangement. But these really aren't plain. At first I thought it would be an easy week, but our director Bill Thomas from Furman, chose pieces that choir directors here would easily be able to implement in their churches at home. And they're beautiful.
