Our wonderful friends, the Servens, have just released two brand new CD’s that we will be giving away here on the blog!
We absolutely love these new CD’s and highly recommend them! If you are not familiar with the Serven Family and the Genevan Foundation, they have produced several CD’s with the purpose of teaching you how to sing the Psalms and Hymns in 4 part harmony. It is an amazing resource for families (and churches) who seek to reclaim the lost art of singing in parts. It wasn’t too many years ago that we were exposed to the wonderful sound and art of harmonious hymn and Psalm singing from the Serven family. Many of us have grown up in a church culture void of 4 part harmony and so attempting to sing in parts is quite an daunting feat for many of us! We have been so encouraged by these CD’s and have been able to learn parts to some wonderful, foundational hymns and Psalms of the Christian faith.
This weekend the most requested… the only requested CD… our children asked to listen to was Nations Praise and Glory, Laud and Honor. They put the Psalm book and a couple of Hymnals in the truck so they could follow along with the CD and it was wonderful hearing their little voices singing to the Lord.
Here is the information on the new releases:
Glory, Laud, and Honor seeks to teach families and churches how to sing the hymns in four part harmony. The first ten tracks demonstrate the full harmony versions. The following selections break the parts down to soprano, alto, tenor, and bass, so you can learn your notes and sing along. All the sections can be found in the Trinity Hymnal, as well as many other fine hymnals.
Nations Praise seeks to teach families and churches how to sing the Psalms in four part harmony. The first ten tracks demonstrate the full harmony versions. The following selections break the parts down to soprano, alto, tenor, and bass, so you can learn your notes and sing along. All selections can be found in The Book of Psalms for Singing.
