A good resource for special music in church... May 17, 2007
I help to lead a men's vocal group that sings periodically at our church. I'm always looking for music that we can sing together, and I stumbled upon this resource when I bought the Phillips, Craig, and Dean "Ultimate Collection" CD for my wife. After listening to the album, I thought that we could probably sing some of this stuff, so I purchased this songbook. For the most part, I'm glad that I did.
The arrangements seem to match the PC&D recordings almost completely. The piano arrangements are obviously less elaborate then some of the accompaniment tracks on their album, but the piano parts seem to provide a solid accompaniment for the vocals. They require a competent but not brilliant pianist.
The vocals are relatively straight-forward. Almost every song begins with a solo, then adds another voice (usually above the melody), and eventually adds the third voice (usually below the melody). As one would expect if familiar with PC&D, these parts are really written for three true tenors, especially the top two parts. We had a baritone singing the bottom part, and he could do it, but he was pushing a bit.
During our recent debut with this book, we sang one song as an offertory and used one other song to lead congregational singing, and I anticipate that we'll put it to good use in the future. We received much positive feedback afterwards.
One other comment, if rather inconsequential, is that the binding of the book is really poor, and after using the book for a few days, it was beginning to fall apart.
In any case, if you have three male voices and like Phillips, Craig, and Dean's arrangements and songs, then this is a great resource to use.
