Last week, I shared some of my favorite (new!) anthems for adult choir. Today, I'm sharing my reading session picks for children's choir!
Guide Us, Lord (Mark Patterson)
Unison/two-part Choir with Piano and optional Viola
The text for this anthem is the well-known Prayer of St. Richard of Chichester. Wonderful, reflective piece - would be great for Lent.
Sing for Joy, Sing Together (Mark Patterson)
Unison/two-part Choir with Piano and optional Flute and Finger Cymbals
Fun! Great song of praise for young singers any time of the year.
How Far Is It to Bethlehem? (arr. David Music)
Unison Choir with Piano
Beautiful setting of this lovely tune, interwoven with "Away in a Manger."
I See You, God (Mark Burrows)
Unison/two-part Choir with Piano
Great text and lovely melody - "Who says you're invisible? I see you all around..." Perfect for young, inquisitive choristers!
What Child Is This? (arr. Melissa Malvar-Keylock and Jill Friedersdorf)
Unison, two-part, or three-part Choir with Piano
Simple, but beautiful setting of this classic carol.
