MP3 audio Click to Listen: They Could Not (Excerpt)

They Could Not - Sacred Vocal SolosFrom the days of the liturgical cantor to the present contemporary vocalist, the church soloist has held a significant place in the worship experience. Through text and melody line, the soloist is able to assist in creating the focus and subject of the service, and to set the tone for the message that is to be delivered.

The contents of this book have been carefully chosen for their unique style, text and -- in a few cases -- their significance in church music history. Ruth Elaine Schram and Gary Hallquist have created some of the most moving and powerful selections any church soloist would require. Suitable for Christmas, Easter, Missions emphasis, Dedication and Memorial or Funeral services, and general worship, this collection offers a wide spectrum of appropriate material.

You will recognize and appreciate such titles as His Eye is on the Sparrow, which has been sung throughout the world by renowned gospel singers; and the dynamic and thrilling They Could Not, written by Claire Cloninger and Ron Harris and made popular by recording artist Sandi Patti. The original titles included in this book are some of the most beautifully written and inspiring of church music today.

Included with the book is an Accompaniment CD, with full performance versions provided in addition; a great tool for learning or for listening enjoyment.
