The Book of Children's Church Songs and Spirituals Compiled by John M.Feierabend and Madeline BridgesSpiral-bound Book241 pages Preschool through high schoolThis comprehensive collections of church songs and spirituals is perfect for anyone looking for great songs for children's choir rehearsals, Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, church and vesper services, church camps, "singings," fellowship events, revival services, elementary music classrooms and other church, music and social gatherings.All of these songs express the Christian faith through a wide range of genres and styles. And all have survived primarily through the oral tradition, offering children and adults the opportunity to share a faith tradition together through music that spans centuries.These songs are organized into pedagogical sections, including "Songs and Chants with Movement," "Fragment Songs," "Story Songs," "Lullabies" and "Canons." Two sections, "Spirituals" and "Early American Hymn Tunes," feature songs that share a common origin, and the final section adds yet "A Few More" - delightful church songs that don't fall into any other category.
Melody and lyrics.
