Celebrate the Feast VAO 2/220

I’ve already blogged the “Canticle of the Turning” (219) here, so that brings me to this song written by David Yackley. This is an uplifting song very suitable for gathering but, fair warning, this is super-syncopated song that alternates between the keys of Eb and Gb and 6 flats is no fun.

The sheet music can be purchased at WLP where there is a snippet of the song for listening purposes. The text in their sample.

My version is in dance mode:

This version proves that it is singable.

Canticle of Mary VAO 2/218

I am continuing with my survey of Voices As One Vol2 and having already covered:

216 Blessed Be Your Name

217 Breathe

 

… I am up to another song by Feargal King, the “Canticle of Mary”. There are many Magnificats out there and this is a light and pleasant setting of his paraphrase.

You can hear a snippet of the original at King’s website and the sheet music as part of a very inexpensive collection called Sacred Gateways. It can also be purchased as a single download at WLP, where the text is available in their sample.

Blessed One VAO 2/215

This is a very useful Marian hymn by Aaron Thompson if you need a new “Ave”.

The sheet music is at WLP. The text and an appreciation of the song are at Ed Bolduc’s blog.

Bless the Lord (Psalm 104) VAO 2/214

I’ve already blogged this one by Marcy Weckler Barr here because it was in As One Voice: Next Generation, but the version in VAO has a third verse not in AOV:NG so I thought I’d make a new backing anyway.

Blessed Is He VAO 2/213

Continuing through Voices As One Vol2 I’ve already blogged :

211 Be God’s

212 Better Is One Day

…which gets me to “Blessed Is He (Palm Processional)” by Feargal King.  This is intended for eight groups of singers and builds to what must be a hell of a bun fight.

The sheet music is at WLP and the text is in their sample. There is a snippet at his web site that sounds remarkable.

Now you know that BIAB can’t do 8 melody lines and even on Realband or ProTools it would just be a cacophony so I’m putting up each line and you can sort it out for yourself if you have eight groups of singers who want to do this one next Palm Sunday.

Be Glorified VAO 2/210

This is a fun P&W song by Chris Tomlin, Louis Giglio and maybe Jesse Reeves. It is a solo piece and not suitable for an assembly except maybe the repetitions of “be glorified in me”.

The text is here and the sheet music is available at musicnotes. If you have a WLP licence you can get Ed Bolduc’s arrangement at WLP.

Mine is funk-lite.

Be Still VAO 2/209

David Kauffman wrote this song in Voices As One Vol 2 loosely based on Psalm 46.

It is designed for a cantor to sing the verses but they are within the range of an assembly with the warning that each verse has subtle melody changes awaiting the unwary. Still, its a lovely song.

The text is here and while Ed Bolduc’s arrangement for WLP only appears available to subscribers, musicnotes has alternative arrangements for sale online.

Be Still and Know That I Am God VAO 2/208

Steven C. Warner of the Notre Dame Folk Choir has written this lovely song in Voices as One Vol 2, which is suitable for Lent and Funerals.

The sheet music is at WLP and the lyrics are in their sample.

My worry with their material is that an assembly is going to be hard pressed to sound anywhere as good as the original. Nevermind – sing along with my backing and see how you go. I couldn’t fit all Warner’s chords in to BIAB but it doesn’t seem to to be an issue.
