Dear Choristers Guild Friends,

We have an "Experience Sacred Music" night at Westminster Choir College on Monday, November 16, at 6:30 p.m. If you have students that are interested in Church Music, please encourage them to come to our event! It will be held during Sacred Music Lab. It will begin with a short student-led worship service. Then we'll have an overview of our program and many of our students will talk about various experiences at Westminster.

Greetings from Vienna and thank you for an awesome Webinar on Rehearsal on Zoom

Struggling to teach 5-6 yo how to sing Dona Nobis Pacem with I've Got Peace Like a River (Frances Sinclair) for the April festival. Doesn't seem age appropriate except for the words in Latin and the spiritual . Ideas? A recording would be helpful.
You guys okay this morning?
Hi, I am a church musician, organist, oboist, composer. I love the music that the Choristers Guild puts out! I even worked at the Dallas location one summer. I just started a new FB group called The Hymn Arrangers Club which you might find useful. We are a community focused on providing hymn intros, reharms, etc. for keyboardists to use on Sunday mornings. It can be challenging to come up with inspiring ways to play hymns week after week. We are trying to help! Composers and performers welcome to the group. Check it out! https://www.facebook.com/groups/701771893567463/
Hello Collective Minds!
I'm looking for a choral Anthem of the story of Ruth and Namoi.
"Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God."
I feel like I'm missing the obvious but can't seem to recall anything.Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!
What are some of your favorite two part treble pieces for youth girls for Ash Wednesday?
