    I sung this cantata with a 25 voice choir in the late '80's. It's now 2014 and I still remember how majestic and glorious the pieces were. "Guide Me O Thou Great Jehova" and "God Moves in a Mysterious Way". If you are part of a reasonably accomplished...

    church choir, you need to sing this for your congregation. It will be a blessing to all.

    I performed this with Don McCullough and the Virginia Symphony many years ago. The previous reviewer said he/she was still singing it after a week. It's been fifteen years, for me, and I sing them all the time. I'm now working on getting my daughter's choir...

    to do a few; they're a small group. This is amazing music, and will slip into the depths of your soul, if you allow it.

    I had the privilege of performing in a chorale led by Mrs. Parker recently in a performance of the Melodious Accord cantata. The works are difficult to learn, but well worth the effort. You feel that you are worshipping and praising God as you are giving your all to sing...

    these tunes. Alice Parker has given several familiar hymns new arrangements which transcend their old tunes -especially House of our God (a rouser), Come ye disconsolate (a beautiful air) and God Moves in a Mysterious Way (it washes over you - I am still singing that song after a week). Whets your appetite for more.
