Lutheran Church of the Resurrection in Racine, WI performed an excellent selection today. Hymn of Mercy by Eileen Barry and Dan Forrest from Beckenhorst publishing. It is for SATB, Piano and optional flute. The flute part is simple but adds a lot. The piano has a lot of flowing 16ths that really makes this work. The vocal writing is simple with some points of unison that could be used as alto solos. It is beautiful and very approachabke for your average church choir. It is a 3 on the Church Music difficulty scale, taking three rehearsals to have learned well. I highly recommend it as a simple, but beautiful standard of the Lenten repertoire. http://www.beckenhorstpress.com/products/hymn-of-mercy
