Betelehemu

A unique and exciting Christmas offering for school or church use! Jonathan Crutchfield has taken a Youruban folk text and arranged it for SATB voices with a brief soprano solo and some very interesting percussion parts. Betelehemu gets its intense rhythms from African drumming techniques. This electric a cappella crowd-pleaser lends itself easily to choreography, and is extremely effective any time multicultural emphasis is desired.

African Children's Choir : It Takes a Whole Village : 00  1 CD

African Children's Choir : It Takes a Whole Village

It's a heartwarming story, Ray Barnett's trip to Uganda to try to do something about the thousands of orphans dying of starvation in a bloody civil war. Much prayer and help from church groups later, the first ACC was selected and brought back to the US. Thus the world got to see actual beautiful, bright, singing African children, which in turn has led to thousands being helped and saved. In "Village" we are delighted by the smiling voices of these remarkable children on 25 lightly accompanied traditional African folk songs, and African-American spirituals. Traditional African songs like "Parapanda," "Abataka," "Jabulani Africa," "Mujje," "Ensi Zonna," "Bolingo" and "Kinakyo" blend well with songs in English like "From a Distance," "It Takes A Whole Village," "Because You Loved Me," "Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee" and "Seed to Sow." In case we haven't been clear, we'll just come out and say it: this is a feel-good CD, from the buying of it (which supports the ACC's good work), to the reading about these kids on the liner notes, to listening to every cut of this wonderful music!

Songlist: Parapanda, Abataka, Jabulani Africa, Natamaba, It Takes A Whole Village, Mujje, Ensi Zonna, From A Distance, Kamuwe Ekirabo, O Happy Day, Bolingo, Kinakyo, O Sifuni Mungu, Ndyahimbisa, Eggulu Lyajjula Ettendo, Because You Loved Me, Betelehemu, Chwinywa, Seed to Sow, Let There Be Peace, Generation Song, Nagirira

Luther College Nordic Choir : The Eight Chestnut Horses : 00  1 CD : Weston Noble : LCRNC04-1

Luther College Nordic Choir : The Eight Chestnut Horses

Not surprisingly, on most of their excellent CDs the Nordic Choir focuses on selections of Christian sacred and spiritual music. In a dramatic change of direction that highlights the Choir's versatility, "Horses" is a collection of World music, beginning with the thundering drums of David Fanshawe's "African Sanctus" and the gentle guitar riffs of "A La Nanita Nana" by Roger Folstrom, the CD continually surprises us. The powerful "Betelehemu" is a "bring the house down" piece in concert, "Prayer of the Children," brings tears remembering children caught in bloodshed and ethnic conflict in the former Yugoslavia in the 1970, and the Chinese "Usuli Boat Song," celebrates finding ways to be happy. The final cut, the title tune, a Mongolian song actually called "Naiman Sharag," gives the feeling of horses running, the song ends quietly, as if the horses are in the far distance. Some strong percussion and light accompaniment. A wonderful, powerful CD!

Songlist: African Sanctus, A La Nanita nana, Betelehemu, Riu, Riu, Chiu, Prayer of the Children, Hacia Belen va un borrico, Cantos Sagrados, African Noel, Song of Cherubim, Usuli Boat Song, Noel Ayisyen (Haitian Noel), Shut de Do, Naiman Sharag (The Eight Chestnut Horses)

The Choral Project : Of Christmastide    onsale

Though founded only in 1996 by Artistic Director Daniel Hughes, this ensemble of thirty voices has already begun to distinguish itself with an eclectic program. As part of their mission, the group seeks to unify diverse peoples, and the track list for "Of Christmastide" reflects this concern. Weighted somewhat towards the 20th century, with Williams, Tavener, Rutter, Holst and Lauridsen amongst the composers represented, the balance includes two Latvian carols, James McKelvey's arrangement of "Deck The Hall in 7/8" and the Nigerian "Betelehemu." Their sonority is broad and expansive, with an airy and open delivery. Some percussion and woodwinds on a few tracks.

Vocal Majority : Believe

It's not very often that one can say with certainty in the music business that any particular group is the very best of its type in the world. Yet we can say as much with this barbershop chorus as they have 11 gold medals to prove it - more than any other chorus in history. We therefore always have high hopes of their new recordings and expect something close to perfection. Well once again they surpass themselves on this holiday gem. One of the things that always impress is how such a sweet, sometimes so gentle; sound can come from such a large chorus of male only voices. Director (and arranger of many of the songs) Jim Clancy truly has a talent for coaxing the very purest of sound from a chorus. There is the occasional accompanied Christmas ornamentation and some very strong solosby Jay Dennis, Steve DeCrow and Jeff Oxley but it's the harmony that counts, and this recording has some of the best!

Songlist: Caroling, Caroling, Believe, Mary's Boy Child, What Child is This?, My Grown-Up Christmas List, Christmas Time Is Here, Kay Thompson's Jingle Bells, That's What I Want for Christmas, Christmas Lullaby, Betelehemu, Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming, Birthday of a King

Dubbed "America's Choir" by President Ronald Reagan, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir celebrates 75 years of continuous weekly radio broadcasts in July 2004, the longest such run in broadcast history. Evolving from its humble beginnings in the barren Salt Lake Valley in 1847 as a choir singing to sagebrush to its spectacular performances at the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, the Choir is now courted by the most sophisticated concert halls in cities across the globe. They have sung at the inauguration of fix U.S. presidents, twice received the prestigious Freedom Foundation Award for promoting patriotism and pride in America, were awarded the prestigious National Medal of Arts, and have been inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame. Please join Walter Cronkite for an amazing look at an American institution and a national treasure.

Jonathan Crutchfield : Betelehemu

A unique and exciting Christmas offering for school or church use! Jonathan Crutchfield has taken a Youruban folk text and arranged it for SATB voices with a brief soprano solo and some very interesting percussion parts. Betelehemu gets its intense rhythms from African drumming techniques. This electric a cappella crowd-pleaser lends itself easily to choreography, and is extremely effective any time multicultural emphasis is desired. The demo recording heard here is by the First Baptist Church Sanctuary Choir, Huntsville, Alabama, directed by Harry Wooten.

Arranger: Jonathan Crutchfield | Country: Africa
