Just one hymn as we have already recorded 'In Christ alone'.
We have a gospel to proclaim
For the choir:
The Lord's my shepherd (Townend)
- 3 verses - chorus twice at the end. Do add the descanty bit in the last verse.
There's a wideness in God's mercy (Corvedale) - includes count-ins.
Lent 3 - Sunday 7 March
IMPORTANT: Follow the recording instructions here
. I only need your voice - not the accompaniment, please.
Words for both hymns - take care at the end of a Abbots Leigh (God is love) to sing the notes I sing and not what congregations normally sing!
God is love let heaven adore him (audio guide track)
Jesu lover of my soul (audio guide track)
If you have not recorded your contribution to the Dorian Acclamation for Lent, please send me your vocal track (I sent the guide track and music last week).
