Southern Gospel Songs
10 New, Emerging and Classic Hits for Southern Gospel Choir
Arranged and Orchestrated by Marty Hamby
Southern Gospel Songs…
Just mention that phrase, and a certain sound and style immediately come to mind. And it comes simultaneously as both a visual and an audible trigger. It is sight and sound encapsulated in so many shapes and forms…from the original, iconic male quartet with a stride-style piano man, to the famous mixed groups—usually a family; Dad, Mom, sons and daughters, spouses—to the not infrequent trio, sometimes all male, sometimes all female, sometimes mixed voices, and even the occasional solo artist…all delivering soulful, joyful, heartfelt and inspiring songs. Songs for the church. Southern Gospel Songs. Songs about life, about prayer, about joy, about sadness, about Heaven, about victory, about coming home and about going home; songs of cheer, songs of love, songs of conviction, songs of salvation…Southern Gospel Songs. And whether you first heard one of these songs sung by a quartet, a mixed group, a trio, a soloist, performed with piano accompaniment only, a full band, or accompanied by an orchestra, you haven’t really heard it until you’ve heard it sung by a choir! Southern Gospel Songs for Southern Gospel Choirs...one of the sweetest sounds this side of Heaven!
That’s what this book, with its dynamic arrangements by Marty Hamby, is all about -- Southern Gospel radio hits, classic Southern Gospel songs, and new and emerging Southern Gospel hits; they are all ready and waiting for you to add the one missing ingredient… your choir! So grab your robes, get your choir folders in hand, do a vocal warm-up or two, and get ready to “sing the glory down” with this great new collection of Southern Gospel Songs!
