  • September 30, 2008 Very good, but not always the best

    Robert Ray's song "He Never Failed Me Yet" is one of the best contemporary Gospel songs around. I was excited to see his Gospel Mass. While must of it is excellent, it is not always his best work. Certain moments stand out, particularly the Credo, which I feel can...

    stand alone as an excellent piece. The vocal writing varies from easy/intermediate to intermediate. The harmnonic language includes a lot of 7th chords and is a little more complex (and interesting) than much Gospel music. There are ample opportunities for strong soloists to be featured. My concern with performing the entire work would be its somewhat repetitive character.

  • May 12, 2008 Fun to hear - Fun to sing - Memorable Hooks

    The Gospel Mass is not difficult to learn, assuming the choir has some basic grasp of syncopation. The trick is to have a rhythm section (piano-bass-drums) that has a solid understanding of the gospel style.

  • December 29, 2007 MUST SING THIS!

    When my choir director put this into our hands (I'm a tenor), I thought there is no way we can do this; we're "just" a church choir. I was wrong! The music is absolutely the most encouraging work, and I sorely needed it. Get it. Buy it. In...

    our choir, there's a teenager up to folks in their 60's. All loved it.
