This is a fine collection of some of Keith & Kristyn Getty's and Stuart Townsend's best known worship music voiced and compiled with the smaller church youth choir in mind, but is usable with adult choirs with a limited number of men, as well. Besides containing 9 nice arrangements that will be do-able by choirs of any size, this collection is an excellent value in the process. The purchase price for these 9 anthems is less than half the cost of purchasing the SATB version of each individual octavo separately. Also available are packets of 10 listening CDs for singers to utilize, an instrumental CD-ROM with excellent orchestrations by David Winkler for a variety of instrumentation, and an accompaniment CD.

The Bottom Line

Pros
Easily accessible, appealing content, SAB
Cons
As in most SAB voicings, the vocal range of the "B" part can be a bit wide for changing male voices, but all can be adapted as needed.
