The delightful Serven family of the Genevan Foundation has released 2 new CDs! We have used and enjoyed their first 2 albums on learning to sing the Psalms in 4 part harmony; now there is a 3rd Psalm CD and – get this – a 4th CD with hymns!
The hymn CD includes the beautiful old classics that our family already knows and loves, and now we can learn to love them more. Selections include these favorites in our own household, plus several more:
- All Glory Laud and Honor
- How Shall the Young
- Holy, Holy, Holy
- Crown Him With Many Crowns
- Come Thou Fount
As with their other CDs, each song is presented 5 ways: Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass, and All. With each single part you can hear, very faintly, the other 3 parts. This helps to prepare you for the harmonies when all of the parts are put together, yet it’s soft enough that it doesn’t distract or confuse while you are learning. I think it’s a brilliant approach!
I also have to mention that the cover art is beautiful. I know; it shouldn’t matter, but it does. These CDs are lovely in every way, and we’re so happy that the Servens have added to their series.
Here’s more joy and happiness: Visit the Genevan Foundation website and come back to tell us your favorite Psalm or hymn from their collections. We’ll draw a winner from among the comments to receive a free copy of both new CDs!by
