The Choral Score Reading Program

by Richard F. Grunow and Milford Fargo 

Michael writes, “I love this resource, and it’s a great way to keep your ears in shape until our choirs assemble again. With the workbook in front of you, you listen to excerpts that have intentionally been recorded wrong! It’s your task to identify the wrong pitches, rhythms, and other music markings.”

Out of the Depths, Volume 1

By Rob Glover

Michael writes, “These two volumes combined provide 130 arrangements of hymnal favorites for bass clef instruments (cello, trombone, bassoon, and others) that feature the melody, a lyric “tenor descant” line, and a true bass line.”

By Rob Glover

Let There Be Light

Words by Frances W. Davis

Music by Richard Proulx

Arranged by James Biery

 

Michael writes, “Maybe it will be a while before your choir will sing, so consider using this singable tune, beautiful arrangement and stunning text with your congregation or in a live-streamed service. We need to sing this text more than ever.”

The Song of the Singing Assembly

By Judith M. Kubicki

Michael writes, “If you are like me, you’ve had plenty of time for additional reading these past few months. Here’s another book to add to your must-read list. I love how liturgical theology and congregational song are joined together in this book.”

Inventions for Organ

By Marius Monninkendam

Edited by Richard Proulx

Michael writes, “Many of us are using less singing and more instrumental music in our weekend liturgies. I have long loved these pieces by Marius Monninkendam. Richard Proulx selected these works and provided an introduction.”
