Celebrate and Sing! (2010)

Judd Street Collection - September 2012
Duration: approx. 4:10

At the end of 2009 ISB Staff Bandmaster Dr Stephen Cobb asked me to write an opener for the ISB to play at the UK SA's Gospel Arts concert in May 2010.  The show was to be called 'Celebrate and Sing!'...no need for me to think up a title!

The piece features two contrasting songs of praise; Let earth and Heaven agree to the majestic tune of Darwells (SA Tune Book 221), and the modern-day Easter song Jesus, we celebrate Your victory.

Let earth and Heaven agree,
Angels and men be joined,
To celebrate with me
The Saviour of mankind;
To adore the all-atoning Lamb,
And bless the sound of Jesus' name.

Charles Wesley (1707-88)
SA Songbook 62 (Tune: Darwells TB 221)

Jesus, we celebrate Your victory
Jesus, we revel in Your love.
Jesus, we rejoice, You've set us free;
Jesus, Your death has brought us life.

I hope this up-tempo music will set feet tapping, hearts beating and voices singing in praise as all who share in this music celebrate the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ – the Saviour of the world.
