Check out this brand new piece...."The Willow".....SSA....text by Pamela Stewart. I think your women's choir might enjoy this piece of contemplation and memory. High school and advanced middle school SSA choirs will find it accessible. http://www.earlenerentz.com/downloads/the-willow-ssa/
Check out the latest sacred choral from EROP. Lee Hill wrote the original lyrics, and Haydn's "Austrian Hymn" provides the melody. Arranged for SATB and TTBB Voices, with orchestration.
At the end of last year, I wrote an arrangement of "Silent Night, Alleluia." I had a request from a customer who wanted a TTBB of the holiday favorite. In addition to the original SATB voicing with Piano, Trio, and Orchestration, I now have settings of this arrangement for TB, TTB, TBB, and TTBB. Yes...customers are already ordering holiday music for the holidays, 2017. Visit our website to take a look at these new additions. Purchase a PDF file, make unlimited copies for your choir. http://www.earlenerentz.com/?s=Silent+Night%2C+Alleluia

Great evening on Monday....Dr. Everett McCorvey and his American Spiritual Ensemble sang my arrangement of Amazing Grace with so much beauty and emotion! All were FANTASTIC soloists....incredible voices...a totally marvelous evening of spirituals. If they are ever on tour in your area...a "must hear."
Loved the Hour of Power (Donald Neuen's choir) performance of my composition "We Have Seen the Lord" (Lorenz 10/3529LA). Here is a link....go 3-4 minutes into the telecast....I think you will enjoy this dramatic account of the Upper Room appearance of Jesus to Thomas and the Disciples. Take a minute to listen....http://hourofpower.org/…/walking-virtuously-dignity-beloved/
It was fun talking to students in the Southeast Kansas Elementary Honor Choir via Face Time. Technology really assists in "winter travel." So much better than being "snowbound" in an airport! Cuts costs for many school systems, too!! All good....
Thanks to Anthony Sears for an invitation to New Orleans to present a session on Earlene Rentz Online Publications and self-publishing through J. W. Pepper's "My Score" Division. So great to see many colleagues and friends......
