Partners In... Spirituals
From Alfred Music Publishingby Jean Anne Shafferman
Singers of all ages love to perform partner songs, and the "Partners In Praise Series" overflows with traditional melodies arranged in partner song fashion for children's, youth, and adult choirs. Each songbook in the series provides a wonderful source of easily-prepared titles for worship and Christian school concerts, as well as reproducible song and narration sheets…no need to buy additional copies for the singers! Add the delightful short narratives before each song and create a medley of two or more songs for children's chapel, special Sunday School programs, vacation Bible school, and adult fellowship events. Combine several groups of singers and perform all six songs with narration for a special 15-20 minute musical program.
Partners In...Spirituals, the first installment in the series, includes six partner song arrangements of favorite spirituals. Great for performance throughout the year, they also are appropriate for special occasions such as Christmas and Easter, Ascension, Christ the King and Pentecost, All Saints' and Lent, communion and peace Sunday, and evangelism or stewardship. Don't miss Tom Goeman's wonderfully orchestrated recording. The song titles include:
- Glory Bound (This Train & When The Saints Go Marchin' In)
- Peace Like A River
- Kum Ba Yah
- Good News! (Go, Tell It On The Mountain)
- Carry Me Home (Swing Low, Sweet Chariot & Deep River)
- Rise and Shine!
- Sing With The Spirit! (I'm Gonna Sing When The Spirit Says Sing & I'm Gonna Sing, Sing, Sing)
