Sacred Choral Music

Every church music director I know cherishes a good one or two rehearsal choral anthem.  If it’s a capella, all the better.  Many of these anthems were composed with that in mind and are accessible to the average parish choir.  Some anthems are more difficult, such as “Prayer to Mary”,  “Ave Maria” and especially “Ubi Caritas” given the divisi and harmonies they contain and will require more rehearsal time!  the first three anthems are short in length, allowing the choir to spend more time working on blend, shape and sound rather than learning parts.  May all the anthems help the People of God enter more deeply into the Sacred Liturgy.  -JG
