New Advent Carols

Tim Carson has shared  very good news with ADM about one of our long-time ADM members, Charlie Kyriakos.

Charlie and Tim created collection of original Advent carols based on many of the traditional Advent lections. The lyrics are poetic renderings of those texts and the music is all original.  A grand staff and congregational melody/words provided for all and many have chord symbols as well.  They are settings which may be adapted for congregational song, ensembles and solos.   We all need new and fresh resources for Advent!

And .... complete permission is provided to copy as much of the material as needed for congregational use and for choirs (with attribution).

Church Music Search Announced

 

RALEIGH, NC, April 15, 2014– The Music Ministry of Pullen Memorial Baptist Church, Raleigh, North Carolina, USA, is pleased to announce its first Church Music Search, a contest for composers and authors. This annual and international search calls for the creation of congregational hymns, choral anthems and orchestral music that engage and exclaim liberal Christian theology and associated themes.  Each year a different musical category and theological theme will be selected to resource Pullen and other theologically-liberal congregations with artistic and meaningful church music.

The 2015 search is for an SATB choral anthem suitable for adult choirs with keyboard accompaniment (organ or piano). Other optional instrumental parts may be included. The text of the anthem should express the meaning and celebration of Easter from a theologically-liberal viewpoint. 

An award of $1500 will be given to the creator of the winning selection (or divided equally between author and composer).  Though the Pullen Music Ministry will retain the right to print and use the winning selection in perpetuity, copyright will remain with the creator(s) and a publisher will be sought for the winning composition. 

Entries are submitted electronically and will be accepted through February 1, 2015. Find submission guidelines and enter at:  www.pullen.org/musicsearch.
