November 20 Concert features American Hymns

 

The 6th annual Harmonies Hymn Concert was held Sunday, November 20, at the Neffsville Mennonite Church, Lancaster, Pa. The hymn were chosen around the theme of American music. Under the leadership of Glenn Lehman, the concert also featured a 24-voice choir, Organist Frank Dodd, the Manor Winds woodwind quintet (photo above) and the Tenor Duo, Stephan Englehart and Brenten Megee.

 

The hymns represented a whole chronological range of the American faith experience including native American, colonial unison, spirituals, gospel, and 20th century.

 

 

Nov. 20 Hymn Concert song list: Sing them over again; We gather together; There is a place; Steal away; When Israel was; There is a balm; When all thy mercies; Just as I am; Softly and tenderly; Lord I am fondly; When my lifework is ended; Alas and did; By and by; Shall we gather by; Precious Lord take; My life flows on; To God be the glory; Open my eyes; Like the murmur; Here I am; Jesus I live to thee; O little town of Bethlehem; I’m pressing on and more.

NEW RELEASE: REBIRTH

Rebirth CD Cover

After 45 year on vinyl, Rebirth is emerging again with this re-release of their third and final self-titled album produced by Harmonies Workshop.

 

As seniors at Eastern Mennonite College, Rebirth peaked with a recording contract and an offer of a one-year touring contract from a national campus ministry. They graduated, took a VW bug and their music to state-of-the-art studios in Atlanta and NYC and made their third and final recording.
