Give Thanks Wednesday, October 12, 2011

Give thanks for God's goodness and mercy with your church choir by programming one of these outstanding selections for Thanksgiving Sunday:

Give Thanks to the Lord
A strong, rhythmic song of thanks and praise based on 1 Chronicles 16: 8-31 and incorporating KREMSER (We Gather Together). Scored for SATB Choir and keyboard with choral parts well within the reach of the average church choir.

A Thanksgiving Flourish
This perfect opener for Thanksgiving Sunday uses the LANCASHIRE hymn tune and joins it with the traditional text, “Sing to the Lord of Harvest.” Traditional in style and function, the organ and handbells add a festive sparkle to the theme. Simple call and response counterpoint creates an easy antiphonal effect that would make a great choral processional.

With Heart and Hands
Commissioned by the Texas Choral Director’s Association, this new Thanksgiving work by John Rutter concludes with a rousing verse of NOW THANK WE ALL OUR GOD for choir and congregation. The piece is scored for mixed voices with organ.
