Voices Of Lee : Voices

Review: This CD and accompanying songbook will be sure to challenge and delight a cappella choirs in search of that perfect holiday or themed selection for their repertoire. Performed by the sixteen-member mixed voice "Voices of Lee,"from Cleveland, Tennessee (and directed by Danny Murray), the songs include "The Star-Spangled Banner,""All Rise,""Silent Night, Holy Night" and eight more. Seven of the arrangements are by the Voices of Liberty's Derric Johnson, with the remainder by Murray, Bradley Knight and Dave Williamson.

Mostly SATB with soloist.

Voices Of Lee : Encore

Review: Eight men and six women form the acclaimed Voices of Lee (University of Cleveland, TN), directed since their debut in 1994 by Danny Murray, apply their rich harmonic blend and top-drawer soloists to their fourth winning album. "Encore" begins with Barry Manilow's "One Voice," a jazzy, upbeat "Power in Praisin' the Lord," a striking, powerful vocal-percussion gem, "Mercy Seat," the heartfelt "Ho, Everyone Who Is Thirsty" (arranged by Derrick Johnson), a scattish, bright arrangement of "Lord, I Lift Your Name on High," the Doo-Woppy Gospel number "When God Dips His Love," the traditional hymns "The Old Rugged Cross" and "Have You Met Jesus" (both also arranged by Johnson), and a bonus track of "Mercy Seat," our personal favorite. Ten songs in total, and there's not a weak track among them. Confident solos, solid harmonies, great arrangements-"Encore" just knocked our socks off! It's one of the best Contemporary Christian albums we've heard this year.

Songlist: One Voice, Power In Praisin' The Lord, He Looked Beyond My Fault, Mercy Seat, Ho, Everyone Who Is Thirsty, Lord, I Lift Your Name On High, All That Thrills My Soul, When God Dips His Soul, The Old Rugged Cross, Have You Met Jesus
