Table Singers re-release 1991 recording, 'Songs of the Church'
The Table Singers album, Songs of the Church, is now available online. It was first released in 1991 as a cassette. The 45-voice Table Singers, led by Glenn Lehman, sang these hymns in October, 1991, at Old Road Mennonite Church and then at Landisville MC, Elizabethtown MC, Columbia MC, Mellinger MC, Franconia MC, and Forest Hills, for a combined audience of 3,120. All hymns are from the Songs of the Church (1953), edited by Walter Yoder.
Besides standards such as “The work is Thine,” “Savior who died for me,” and “Christ who left his home in glory,” this album includes sublime choral pieces such as “Christ we do all adore thee,” “Jesus thou joy of loving hearts,” “Sunset and evening star,” and “Still, still with thee.”
Several pieces by Mennonites are included: “A child is born in Bethlehem,” “Since Jesus freely did appear,” and “Jesus from whom all blessings flow.” Also included are classics such as “O the unsearchable riches,” “Jesus priceless treasure,” and the “Doxology,” blending two settings.
"Songs of the Church" is now available on most online music stores and streaming services, including:
