See Him

No 108 in AOV NG is “See Him”, another celtic chant style song by Keith Duke.  I haven’t had a lot of luck trying to make decent backings for chants and I’m not sure things are any better this time. … Continue reading

Reach Out

No 107 in As One Voice: the Next Generation is another Gina Ogilvie and Monica O’Brien song, “Reach Out.”  It sounds like another song for encouraging high school students but would work as entrance or recessional in a mass as … Continue reading

Judy Bailey has provided another excellent contribution at 106 in AOV NG, “Praying God.”  She has recycled a couple of old hymns and come up with something special. Her songs in this collection are not the usual kind of material you … Continue reading
