In this podcast from the RSCM, John Barnard and David Iliff discuss Songs, Psalms & Spirituals – their fourth collection of more than 50 attractive and catchy pieces for choirs, including harmony arrangements of worship songs, psalm settings and much-loved spirituals.
Both John Barnard and David Iliff have worked as directors of music of many a church choir. John Barnard is well-known as a composer and arranger of hymn tunes, including Guiting Power. David Iliff is Director of Music at Malvern Priory.
Like their previous collections (The RSCM Carol Book, Season by Season, and The Carol Book Supplement) this is a photocopiable resource*. During the podcast you’ll hear extracts from some of the songs in the collection, including music from Graham Kendrick, Malcolm Archer and Johnny Dankworth. As well as four-part arrangements, many songs have also been arranged for three-part and two-part choirs. David and John explain all in this podcast.
