Praise Harmony Recording Singers Oceans

"In Christ Alone" is one of my favorite contemporary hymns because it is chock-full of the Gospel message. This song encourages us to reiterate and declare the tenants of our faith, which is one of the reasons that God intended for Christians to sing. We recorded "In Christ Alone" on our Praise & Harmony "Only God" CD which can be purchased here. We are passionate about equipping non-musicians and untrained singers in how to hear and sing harmony on these precious songs. That's why every Praise & Harmony album includes two discs: the primary CD featuring all the songs along with an additional "vocalist training disc," which isolates the harmony parts. This disc helps individuals sing along in harmony "by ear." Sheet music and powerpoint music notation slides for use in worship are also available at The Acappella Company on-line store.

The singers traveling with us invested time in learning the harmony parts to the songs before the trip. The Grand Cayman churches who participated also worked on the songs ahead of time. After the Praise & Harmony Workshop, Acappella shared an edifying concert with us. I counted multiple cell phones taping most of the concert.

The demise of ballads has long been predicted, and this is one reason folksong collectors have avidly sought them out, but old ballads continue to be sung and new songs are still written that hark back to the ballads of earlier times. The folksong revival of the 1940s, and the later revival of the 1950s through the 1970s, led to new interest in narrative songs. Singers such as Woody Guthrie and Joan Baez not only sang old ballads, but wrote some of their own. This movement entered the mainstream in the late 1950s, when singers performed ballads with both acoustic and electric arrangements. Lloyd Price's 1958 recording of the African American ballad "Stagger Lee" was just one version of this song to become a rhythm and blues hit. The Kingston Trio's 1958 recording of the traditional ballad "Tom Dooley" went to number one on the charts and won a Grammy award in the "country and western" category. It was based on this 1940 Library of Congress field recording of Frank Proffitt. On his 1967 album "John Wesley Harding," Bob Dylan intended to invoke ballads of the frontier, while singing narrative songs in his own style. In the 1970s the late Jim Croce was famous for his unique style of urban narrative songs, such as "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown," and "Rapid Roy," which blended African American and Anglo ballad styles. Ballads continue to be of interest to songwriters such as Paul Simon, who began his career playing traditional ballads such as "Scarborough Fair" and "Barbara Allan," and who has written many narrative songs in his long career, from "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard" (1972) to "The Teacher" (2000). Both rap and hip-hop music have drawn heavily on ballad-style storytelling, while modern Mexican and Mexican-American popular songs draw deeply on the corrido tradition. Whether songwriters compose new songs to resemble earlier forms of balladry or cloak their narratives in the styles of current popular music, they compose them for an American public still eager to hear songs that tell stories. 041b061a72
