Here's a collection of 10 arrangements each with a message-centered lyric (that's the heart!) and a compelling, stylized setting (that's the soul!). Camp Kirkland has given to these songs an "uptown gospel" feel and the results is an exciting compendium of fresh, innovative and highly singable arrangements for SATB choirs of all sizes.
A generous supply of familiar, well-loved hymns and gospel songs receive an up-dated treatment and in some cases are paired with more recent songs in thematic medleys. Ample opportunities for solos or small groups are also provided.
Keyboard accompaniments are faithful to the "feel" of this collection and the orchestrations - playable by most church ensembles - offer the option of colorful, stylistically authentic support. Choir directors will find this book to be an especially useful resource for Sunday night meetings, revivals or evangelistic rallies and mass choir performances, as well as Sunday morning services. Moderately advanced SATB.
