New responses for sung worship in the 21st century for congregation and organ
Church sung liturgy for celebrant and congregation with organ (guitar chords) and optional flute or small orchestra
Becky wrote this set of worship sung responses in memoriam of 500 years since Martin Luther’s Reformation began a Protestant tradition. Comprised of 12 pieces including: Invocation, Lord, Have Mercy, Glory to God, Hallelujah round, Gospel, Offertory, Preface, Holy, Holy, Holy, Christ Has Died, Lamb of God, Alleluia and Blessing.
For congregations looking for tuneful and meaningful new responses in English, this is a very welcome addition to worship resources. An a capella version in audio files here has been recorded to aid learning by all which is available from the composer:
Written in 2017 for the St Stephens Lutheran Church in Adelaide, the total 12 pieces spans 13-minutes. Most responses are very short and can be learned by a congregation one at a time before worship until they become familiar and loved.
