In Christ Alone by Craig Courtney. For SATB choir, piano. Eastertide, General. Octavo. Published by Crystal Sea Music Publishing (LO.9780834182912).
In Christ Alone by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend has become one of the most acclaimed, performed, and loved of all sacred songs of our time. Craig Courtney has breathed fresh and creative energy into this amazing piece. He brings his signature touches to the voicing and harmonies, complete with a breath-taking a cappella section that ends with the triumphant forte major chord punctuating the phrase up from the grave, He rose again! Michael Lawrence places the exclamation point on this glorious piece by adding an absolutely stunning orchestration, complimenting the marvelous Courtney-esque keyboard accompaniment. Appropriate for any service of the year, In Christ Alone is the perfect choice for a powerful ending to Easter worship.
