RS was kind enough to put this year’s Easter liturgies from their parish recently. There was a lot of material new to me that I will be putting up over the next few weeks.
It seems clear that a lot of US music that came out after AOV 1&2 has not had a lot of exposure in Australia. I recently went on a second hand hymn book raid on Abebooks and will be looking at some of these songs that have passed us by.
This is a Tom Conroy song that is obviously for Easter Sunday. The number of YouTube clips suggest it’s popular but a lot of the versions seem to drag.
The text is here and the sheet music can be purchased from OCP.
I've worked my way through the As One Voice books and other collections making backings on Band in a Box to help me (& you if you're interested) learn new songs for church. This is aimed at churches and musicians that own the collections but haven't exploited them fully. If you don't have them they are certainly worth buying. This site is educational, nonprofit and designed to enhance the commercial prospects of songwriters. This site does not distribute copyrighted sheet music.
Any opinions expressed here are personal views and not the responsibility of any Church.
All music backings posted are created by myself and the intention is for them to be used to learn the songs. If any copyright holder wishes me to cease publicising and promoting their wares and directing people to where sheet music can be legally purchased please let me know.
As One Voice: The Next Generation
This book is hugely recommended and I suggest you go to the AOV site and buy a copy.
