Description:

This collection is second to none: masterfully crafted compositions resplendent with interesting harmonies married to texts selected from the works of the finest hymn writers of our time. Lovers of serious choral music are going to be thrilled with this new offering. Musical styles are varied, from gospel to a distinctly classical sound, sprinkled with a wide variety of instruments.

Selected works include "All Glory Is Yours"-rich and melodic, with a memorable and singable refrain; "Build Your City on the Hill"-rousing, with an early American flavor; "Christ Is the Day"-mysterious, for Advent; "Cleanse the Thoughts of Our Hearts"-choral music at its finest; "Before the Song Was Done"-majestic and lilting, for Christmas; "This Our Joy and This Our Feast"-Joyful, for Easter, with trumpets and alleluia!

Just consider this roster of text writers: Brian Wren, Delores Dufner, OSB, Sylvia Dunstan, Richard Leach, and Timothy Dudley-Smith. In addition, traditional texts include "The Prayer of St. Patrick," a selection from Piae Cantiones, and one from The Book of Common Prayer. There are also a selection from ICEL and adaptations by Bob Moore.

I COME WITH JOY (G-4933) • ALL GLORY IS YOURS (G-4934) • SLOWLY TURNING, EVER TURNING (G-4935) • BUILD YOUR CITY ON THE HILL (G-4936) • SWEET REFRESHMENT (G-4937) • CHRIST IS THE DAY (G-4938) • CHILD OF MARY (G-4939) • CLEANSE THE THOUGHTS OF OUR HEARTS (G-4940) • HOW HOLY THIS FEAST (G-4941) • CHRIST THE WAY OF LIFE (G-4942) • WE BRING,  YOU TAKE (G-4943) • WE BLONG TO CHRIST (G-3874) • BEFORE THE SONG WAS DONE (G-4944) • THIS OUR JOY AND THIS OUR FEAST (G-4945) • CHRIST BE WITH ME (G-3855)
