Jesus Is Coming Soon

Great song…the build at the end that starts at 4:02 is nothing new musically, but it is really good and sounds just great when done by the “kids”, especially when they put it all together at 5:10.

Cry Holy

James Early taught Joyful Voices this song, but we never worked hard enough on it to get it just right, so we never performed it, which is a shame  It is from a movie titled “Something To Sing About”.  I watched the movie; it was okay, but this song is one of my favorites (even thought it is quite over-produced with synthesized strings and bells and all). 

It’s a bit weird how some lyrics are repeated TWICE..that was hard for me to get. (“Holy Holy, Lord God Al-Mighty Mighty, Early in the morning morning, our song shall rise to thee.”).  Enjoy!

Walk Around Heaven

I probably don’t post enough songs by male quartets.  If you don’t know about The Mighty Clouds of Joy, you should.  They are one of the venerable male quartets and they’ve cranked out a LOT of records…over 30 in their time. The Mighty Clouds of Joy formed in Los Angeles in 1961 and started out in a tradition-based style. Eventually they added soul, R&B, and rock into their musical mix without diluting the essential religious essence of their material. Thegroup flourished throughout the rest of the 20th century, scoring numerous Grammy Awards and nominations, as well as several hit albums along the way.

This is a great song with a wonderful Caribbean feel to it. The building 4 part chorus starting at 2:43 is super…pretty impressive singing for a “youth choir”.
