Comment: Re: Pop/Show/Musical Theater and Choir
If we don't teach them what they don't usually hear at home, they won't learn to love the beauty of the classical music. I don't want to think that over the years we may find college choir directors wondering the same just because  we didnt teach our high schoolers to love classical.    David...

Comment: Re: Looking for Songs on the Theme of Light with ORGAN
I highly recommend you, "Morning has Broken" by Diana Bish. It is for choir and organ, and orchestra. But I believe, it can be performed only with the organ, since it was originally composed for Organ and Choir. It is simply amazing!
