A refreshing new collection of over 100 hymns, songs and choruses, whose appeal extends far beyond the targeted school audience to worship sessions in any religious gathering or for personal worship. Caribbean favourites, with their own unique rhythms such as reggae, calypso and mento, are blended with traditional European and American hymns and African-American spirituals. Selections were chosen for theological as well as musical value and cover a wide denominational base. The musical score for the melody line and chord patterns are included to ensure that everyone can sing every song in the collection. Let us sing to the glory of God!
