What we’re working on

17 February 2013 at 7:00 pm 1 comment

Currently our ward choir is working on a nice SATB arrangement of Be Still, My Soul, arranged by Larry Beebe (I’m the accompanist, and I will need to work on the right hand triplets!). The Beebes are actually not far from us, up in Independence, Missouri, while we are in Lee’s Summit. Both in Jackson County.

For a funeral tomorrow I am accompanying a solo male singer and violinist on Jesus, the Very Thought of Thee, arranged by Tabernacle Choir organist Bonnie Goodliffe. It is intended for choir, but I think it would work well either for a choir or soloist/duet. It is a nice simple, but solid arrangement that can be put together quickly, although I admit I struggle a little with the C flats in the opening section since it starts in G flat major (6 flats).

So that is what we are currently working on. Please share what your choir is doing.
