And now for something completely different for Advent! So much of our traditional music for the season of waiting is slow and in a minor key. The emphasis is on longing and despair. John Parker and David Lantz break the mold with 'Great Day A-Comin,' an exuberant neo-spiritual, Great Day A-Comin'. Focusing on the joy to come, this exciting a cappella number simply bubbles over with good cheer. A spirited change for the later weeks of Advent. Donald Moore's 4 part arrangement of 'Beautiful Savior' is a beautiful take on the Silesian melody, a great worship piece! 'Wonderful Savior' is a simple, yet expressive arrangement of the familiar hymn tune, BENTON HARBOR. Careful stepwise voice leading aids in learning and creates a seamless harmonic effect. The distinctive second verse set in minor is quite effective. For Lent, Holy Week, or as preparation for a time of prayer, this beloved hymn anthem is very moving. Spirited and sparkling, Jay Althouse's 'Alleluia' is the perfect all-occasion octavo. Available in women's or SATB voicings, this cheerful a cappella anthem is appropriate for church or school use, in concert, contest, festival, or worship settings. 'Nearer, My God, to Thee' is lovely and very moving. Pure, pristine harmonies reflect the simple desires of this prayer. Yet as the yearnings intensify with each verse, so do the textures and tone colors of this wonderful a cappella arrangement. The third verse, in particular, has some fabulous dissonances and rhythmic effects.
