Wednesday, March 23rd -- Choir Rehearsal

Hello everyone!

I'm looking forward to practice tonight @ 7:00 p.m.! I feel reasonably sure that we won't have time to complete this entire plan. It's just too much singing. And unfortunately, an hour of rehearsal isn't enough time to wade through it all. However, I'm going to do my best to get us as far as we can.

The first two songs (from the Ready to Sing book) are pretty easy to learn, if you don't already know them. I'm planning on doing one of them on Sunday morning. It will depend on how quickly you (the choir) pick them up as to which one we'll sing. I'm guessing that the 2nd one will be easier and more well known, but I've been wrong before! The songs from the 2 Mike Speck books, Testify and Marching to Zion, are harder than the two selections from Ready to Sing but aren't "difficult" by any stretch. They won't be "ready to sing" --ha ha -- after just one rehearsal, though.

So...barring any unforeseen circumstances, here's our rehearsal order for tonight:

Ready to Sing Contemporary Vol. 2
  1. O Lord, You're Beautiful (Medley) p. 77
  2. In The Presence Of Jehovah p. 87
The Celebration Hymnal
  1. Hymn #214 (Optional Choral Ending -- Eb Major)
TESTIFY -- Songs for the Soul-Winning Church
  1. I'll Put on a Crown p. 52
  2. Testify p. 97
Marching to Zion -- featuring the Specks
  1. Glorious City of God (with Marching to Zion) p. 8
  2. Offering of Praise p. 30
I Will Rise -- Easter Music
  1. Jesus Is the Lord p. 68
  2. Glory to God p. 99
  3. Overcome p. 113
  4. Rise and Sing p. 128
  5. I Will Rise Finale p. 141

Wednesday, March 9th

Tonight's choir rehearsal starts at 7:00, as usual, and ends at 8:00 -- again, as usual. I hope to preview some of the songs from our upcoming Easter cantata/musical. Hopefully, we'll practice How Can I Keep from Singing with My Savior's Love, You Alone Can Rescue and Jesus Paid It All. (Jesus Paid It All is very short.)

Sunday's anthem is PROBABLY going to be Loud Enough to Wake the Dead from the book, Testify.

See you at practice!
