I've neglected to keep track of our choir anthems lately, but here are some for the most recent weeks:

alt  A Prayer for Peace (Henry Baker/Karissa Dennis, Shawnee Press, 35030316)  With cello.

 

Leaning on the Everlasting Arms  (Eric Nelson, MorningStar Music Publishers, 50-8970)  With cello and oboe.

 

alt  Holy, Holy, Holy (Robert Clatterbuck, Hope Publishing Company, C 5470).  No YouTube video, so the link takes you to the anthem on sheetmusicplus.

 

alt Look at the World (John Rutter, Hinshaw Music, NMC1527)  Always lovely, always Rutter.

altThey Shall Soar Like Eagles (Laura Manzo, Fred Brock Music, BG2078)

alt Kum Ba Yah (John Rutter, Hinshaw Music, HMC2435) (No YouTube; the link takes you to the anthem on J.W. Pepper).

This is simple but not just your father's campfire song (or yours); this is Rutter.  According to the notes in our bulletin,

When composer John Rutter heard the news that his close friend Nelson Mandela had died, he couldn't speak and walked to the piano and created the arrangement of Kum Ba Yah.
