Sunday September 4, 2011

Wow. Is it really September already? We have our first Christmas concert rehearsal tonight. I'm so pumped. I actually got the entire concert planned before our first rehearsal this year. Still a few charts to finish, but overall, I'm excited about the possibility of having more solid preparation.

Anyhoo, here's what we sang this past Sunday:

Introit: Salvation to the Lamb - for those of you who aren't familiar with the term, "introit" is just a fancy way of saying "introduction" or "intro to worship". This particular tune is one we're going to start using during worship, so usually songs like that will be played as an introit or offertory so the congregation will have heard it a time or two beforehand. It's by Indelible Grace folks.

Come Christians, Join to Sing - Trinity Hymnal #302. We re-arranged the chord structure and harmonies to have a more modern sound.

How Vast the Benefits Divine - Trinity Hymnal #470; a hymn originally by Augustus M. Toplady and re-written by me! It's a great summary of Ephesians 1 & 2

Jesus is Our Great Salvation - a tune off of Red Mountain's "Gadsby Project" album (recorded by my friend Stokes Skellie). Very calvinistic.

Offertory: Give Us Clean Hands - the classic Charlie Hall tune

Communion Song: Grace and Peace - Fernando Ortega

Hear Us From Heaven - Jared Anderson/Ross Parsley
