Fr. Jim Marchionda creatively presents the word of God as proclaimed throughout the Church's liturgical seasons. From Father Jim's CD and music collection The Good News, this is a gratifying composition for two-part children's choir, cantor, and assembly. The infectious Calypso-like rhythms and memorable, singable melodies will inspire young ensembles to sing out with joyful expression. The refrain is crafted as a canon and produces instant harmony with ease of teaching and performance. By contrast, the verses are set in the relative minor, designed with younger soloists in mind. For that extra touch, add small percussion instruments and rhythm guitar.
