    REACH: Lighting the Kwanzaa Candles
    Unitarian Universalist worship service for Kwanzaa.

  • We often skip over that part of the speech, listening only to 'I have a dream.' We wear T-shirts and hang posters and sing songs and hold hands and say, 'I have a dream.' But the dream is the green part of the Kwanzaa message - the vision for a wonderful future

    Acappella Company
    Group profile, album reviews and ordering information.

  • One of their more recent albums, Beyond a Doubt, features the single 'If There Were No God' which reached #7 on CCM's national music countdown

  • With an exceptional vocal range, and a unique ability to compose memorable songs, Keith recorded his first album, singing all the parts a cappella, at an early age

  • Now, as the founder of The Acappella Company, Keith heads up producing the unique and diverse a cappella projects, using the finest all-vocals techniques, technology, and voices available

  • He is also director of a small singing group at David Lipscomb University

  • Although there are some cool pix of the group hanging out in some sort of greasy spoon in the liner notes, the Acappella Company isn't about glorifying themselves, as even the singers' names are only mentioned once, in small print—the focus is on Jesus and their ministry

  • The purpose of the CD being to glorify Jesus, not the egos of the singers, we respect this and find it commendable

  • 2203 CD $14.98 Set Me Free Only Truth Set Me Free More Precious Than Gold Not My Will But Thine My Lord And My God Lead Me To Rest Nobody But Jesus Special Kind Of Love Long Way To Go Hush Stand On The Rock Everything We Need It seems important to this reviewer to follow the contributions of different singers to the legacy of outstanding a cappella music which has eventuated from Keith Lancaster

    Charlie Haden - Verve Records
    Verve Music Group site for the bassist, bandleader and composer with biography,
    discography and audio samples.

  • As he wrote in the liner notes of that majestic 2002 symphonic offering: “I always dreamed of a world without cruelty and greed, of a humanity with the same creative brilliance of our solar system, of an America worthy of the dreams of Martin Luther King , and the majesty of the Statue of Liberty...This music is dedicated to those who still dream of a society with compassion, deep creative intelligence, and a respect for the preciousness of life -- for our children, and for our future.” Two years later, in the aftermath of the 2004 presidential election, Haden was inspired to speak out this time using the Liberation Music Orchestra to articulate his concerns

  • And inside that song, Carla put the African-American anthem ‘Lift Every Voice And Sing.’ and Ornette Coleman ’s provocative ”Skies Over America” (the title track of Coleman’s first recorded orchestral symphonic work from 1972)

  • At the end of the movie they do this song with David Bowie singing called ‘This Is Not America.’ We do ‘Amazing Grace, ’ Dvorak ’s ‘Goin’ Home, which is from his New World Symphony

    Singing and the Alexander Technique
    Describes the natural, healthy coordination of singing, how this coordination
    can be interfered with, and how such interference can be diminished/stopped.

  • The Alexander Technique for Musicians Born to Sing by Ron Murdock I can't remember a time when I did not sing

  • My earliest memories are of singing with my mother while she baked bread or did the ironing

  • I grew up in a small village in Nova Scotia and was indeed fortunate to have Vivian Brand, a music educator par excellence, as my first singing teacher

  • Every child or teenager who came in contact with her could sing because she firmly believes we are born to sing

  • When I went to the University, the professor who taught School Music Education impressed upon us that all children, unless something is organically wrong, can sing

  • She gave us various skills, exercises and ideas, (including 'tone matching' games) to use with children who were so-called 'droners'--meaning they could not sing in tune

  • Once this is done the child sings in tune

  • In this four year span, dealing with hundreds of children, there was not one who, eventually, could not sing

  • (wav file 145K) Why then are so many people reluctant to sing? Why do they feel they can not sing at all? It is a strange situation given the fact that children love to sing and their first attempts at speech are singing sounds

  • Home | How I went from blowing an easy "singing telegram" audition ..

  • In a matter of hours, using simple, easy exercises, I was "suddenly free, " exploding past my vocal limits, and extending my range by over an octave

  • I was the most frustrated singer in the world

  • I was turned down cold for a "singing telegram" job (I really did blow the audition tune, "Happy Birthday to You")

  • You've visited a vocal "coach" who has talked more about breathing than about singing, or more about "support" than about sounding better

  • Your singing life is about to change My name is Brett Manning, and thanks to my painful story, I now lead singers out of their vocal difficulties all day long

  • You see, I regularly "hand" singers a full octave or more in as little as a couple lessons, and in the process, they lose all vocal strain

  • I created a fool-proof system that literally "erases" the range limits for 99% of the singers who use it! I've discovered and invented a series of simple, easy exercises that 'trick' the voice into working as it was designed to--effortlessly, 'shifting gears' as it moves over a wide range of notes

    Continuous Singing
    Defends Lining-out of the Psalms from a Presbyterian viewpoint.


  • —In this part of divine service, the Lord’s people are employed in that exercise which most resembles the eternal work of the redeemed in heaven: for we have been taught by our pious parents from childhood to conceive of heaven as 'a glorious place, where the redeemed will be forever praising God.' And when the saints of God attain to any thing like a heaven upon earth, it is when with united and harmonious voices they sing the high praises of the Lord in the great congregation

  • On this part of worship the adorable object of our praise expressly commands thus:—'Sing ye praises with understanding, ' (Ps

  • The holy and fervent apostle Paul would combine these two properties in praising God:—'I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also, ' (1 Cor

  • But when the whole congregation, following the apostolic example and obeying the divine command, harmonize in praising God, it is obvious that all must be acquainted with the matter of the song
