Soon And Very Soon

Gospel Choir

Soon And Very Soon is a contemporary gospel song by Andraé Crouch.

This is the second of the two Mass Choir selections for the District Choral Festival.  All voices sing.

This YouTube video features the original recording artist and composer of Soon And Very Soon.  Although Andraé Crouch sings it as a solo with female backup singers, it is very similar to our choral version.

Climbing Over Rocky Mountain

This selection is for the women’s mass choir in the 2014 District Choral Festival.  All female voices in our group are singing this number.  No male voices.

Note to altos:  in measures 136-137 on the last page, altos split into two parts.  We are singing the lower of the two notes.  So, the two notes are A and C; we are singing only A.

SSA Soprano I, Soprano II, and Alto parts together:

This recording has all three parts that we are learning played at the same time. Do not use this recording until you think you can sing your part pretty well.  Since three notes are often being played simultaneously, it can be harder to hear your note – but it’s there.  Listen closely, and you will hear…

This is the first of two Mass Choir selections for the District Choral Festival.  All voices sing.  It is in 4-part SATB.  Our men will be singing the bass part only.

In all the recordings, at measures 50, 51, and part of 52, there are no vocal parts, but the piano plays accompaniment to keep time so you can enter at the correct place for the finish.

Soprano part:

Alto part:

Altos are taking the middle note whenever the women’s parts divide into 3 parts.  At the ending, in measures 53 and 54, altos are singing the top note of the alto notes, which are all stems down.  (The sopranos have the tied whole notes above.)

SAB –  Soprano, Alto, and Bass parts together:

“SAB” is an abbreviation (the first letter of each word) for “Soprano Alto Bass.”  This recording has all three parts that we are learning played at the same time. Do not use this recording until you think you can sing your part pretty well.

Piano accompaniment:

“Piano accompaniment” means only the actual piano part written in the music is played.  There are NO vocal parts being played.  This is what you will hear during the performance.  Before using this, you should be able to sing your part independently, that is, without help from the piano.

The Star-Spangled Banner

“The Star-Spangled Banner” is the national anthem of the United States.

We will be singing the Star-Spangled Banner in three parts.  Each individual part is recorded on the piano and can be played back from this web page by clicking on the embedded audio players found below.

There are also download links so that you can have the mp3 for yourself.  After downloading it, you can put it on any phone, device or computer you want.  It’s quite convenient to have the actual mp3 recording so that you can play it back wherever and whenever you want, and you won’t need an Internet connection.

PDF link Copies of the music are available in class.  The following link will open up a PDF of the music, if your browser supports PDF viewing, or it may download it, if your device recognises PDF files:

(PDF is a file format for documents, the way MP3 is a file format for audio/sound.)

Any questions or problems?  Please feel free to ask in class.
