- All God’s People is a service book of hymns, songs, readings and prayers all exploring the theme of diversity
All God’s People is a service book of hymns, songs, readings and prayers all exploring the theme of diversity. The format is the familiar one for RSCM Young Voices Festivals with a conductor’s score in the book and then both in the book and on CD-ROM (and printable and photocopiable) all the singers’ music, prayers and readings. The CD-ROM also includes an order of service for the congregation, training notes, warm-up ideas, and an introductory session on the theme of diversity. Finally there is an extra CD with demonstrations of the music and backing tracks.
Any difference between song and anthem is blurred. The three designated ‘anthems’ are Marty Haugen’s song ‘We are a part of all creation’, Geoff Weaver’s arrangement of the Ghanaian song ‘Jesu, Jesu, fill us with your love’, and Ken Burton’s three-part Change is coming. ‘Songs’ include a two-part arrangement by John Barnard of ‘When I needed a neighbour, were you there?’, Geoff Weaver’s two or three-part arrangement of the Nicaraguan song ‘Sent by the Lord am I’ and Chris Norton’s three-part ‘Come on, all you people’. David Peacock arranges ‘We worship God in harmony’ (tune of Auld Lang Syne) alas not in harmony but in unison only for the voices. Add to all those titles the hymns ‘Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation’ and ‘All creatures of our God and King’ and it is apparent how musically rich and varied is this resource pack.
