A cappella Anthems

Bethlehem Procession - Glorysound A 7526   As the men begin with the drum-like, “Come, O come...,” the women soar with a lyrical line which beckons the listener to join the procession to see the Christ child.  The piece builds to a joyous call to “come, see the shining light,” then gradually fades into the distance.  You can almost feel the procession as it goes by.   The optional bongos, tambourine and finger cymbals will make this anthem especially dramatic.  A perfect piece to begin a program or to help tell the story of the wise men (Epiphany).

 

Don’t Worry About Tomorrow 10/4214L view This is so fun to sing. It’s a message from the Sermon on the Mount that we all need to hear. A cappella with optional percussion and ukulele or guitar. My choir helped me insert a little joke on the very last measure. Accomp CD: 99/2970

 

Down to the Water to Pray Glorysound A 7681

 

Fill-a-Me-Up - Monarch 10/2807M  (New SAB with Spanish text: 10/3439M) This has an African/spiritual feel and includes optional percussion that really makes it cook.  This has already received a great response in churches AND schools. Performance/Accomp CD: 99/1717M

 

Give Us Peace-Glorysound A 7311 from my CD PSALMS OF THE WOOD.  This can be sung with or without piano.

Hem of Your Robe – Alfred A bestseller! Inspired by a passage from Matthew 14: 35-36, this is an original spiritual, sung a cappella with optional shaker

How Long? - Lorenz 10/4172L One of the most asked questions of faith.  The verses begin, “How long ‘til this world is free from suffering?” “Press on, let faith and hope sustain you.” “Send me until the love of heaven will descend and peace will reign again.”  Perfect for the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

I'm Going Home - Glorysound (NEW IN 2004)   This boisterous Sacred Harp hymn was used in the movie, Cold Mountain. This arrangement puts the hymn into a very vibrant SATB form.  Our choir has a blast singing this.

Jazz Hosanna - Fred Bock Music BG2303  Really cool and creative.  This works well with piano and guitar.  You can leave off the last measure. 

Lay Up Your Treasures – Lorenz 10/1461M (new TTBB: 10/3766)  My assignment was to write a stewardship piece - not an easy subject.  So I went to the words of Jesus as recorded in Matthew. This has appeared in the American Choral Director’s National Convention reading session.

Let All the People Say Amen – Monarch 10/3611M 

Lord Have Mercy – Lorenz 10/4093 view  A cappella written straight from the heart.  A prayer for others who are in need with each verse ending,   “Lord have mercy on me.” With optional stomps and claps. 

People Who Walk in Darkness – Monarch 10/3174  This is also included in the cantata, I HEAR THE PROPHET CALLING

Rejoice in the Hope – Church Street Press (SSATTB) More challenging a cappella, commissioned by the Gary Bonner Singers

Reap What You Sow – Lorenz 10/4048L view A cool reflective a cappella: “What you plant in love will surely bloom and the fruit of the Spirit will come back to you.”

Row Together to the Kingdom - Alfred 23693 A cappella.

To God Be the Glory – Hal Leonard 35028660 a cappella Listen |View This drives forward with ostinato and echo effects for a celebrative worship anthem.

Upon This Rock – Lorenz 10/3906L  During its first year, this was the bestseller of all Lorenz releases.

Waitin’ for the Mornin – Lorenz 10/4481L Music Sample Pages  Though this has accompaniment, it is designed to also work as a cappella piece.  Written in a soulful spiritual style, this may be sung with or without the piano.  Of course it’s appropriate for Holy Week or even as an intro to Easter.  However, this will offer hope year round to those who are walking through times of personal darkness.

Walking Cross the Sea– Monarch 10/3513M (TTBB also available) This has a slow rocking spiritual feel. This has piano, rhythm section and Gospel organ, but it works perfectly as an a cappella piece.

We Are Not Alone Shawnee A 7924

We Fall Down – Lorenz 10/3928L Accomp CD and rhythm parts available, though this works as an a cappella piece.

We're Gonna Worship Christ the King - 10/4245L Description: Music  Description: Sample Pages  In a call and response spiritual style. Very fun, singable a cappella
