The powerful sound of Black Gospel choir music can uplift and unite congregations and choirs in heartfelt worship. From writer/arranger Dave Williamson comes the dynamic choral collection Rejoice. His arrangements authentically reflect the heart of Black Gospel choir music, eloquently combining emotion, rhythm, melody, and harmony to create great shouts of praise and intimate moments of adoration. Drawing on material from established songwriters and performers in this genre such as Kirk Franklin, Shirley Caesar, and Richard Smallwood, Rejoice captures their passion in an exuberant worship experience. Alongside these modern expressions of praise, this collection also includes new treatments of standard hymns and an arrangement of the Christmas carol, "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing." With its up-tempo worship songs and soaring ballads, Rejoice helps singers in groups of every size from ensembles to full choirs communicate a wide range of soulful emotions.
