Galilee Baptist Church San Angelo
I had the amazing opportunity to work with the choir at the Galilee Missionary Baptist Church. These wonderful singers kindly agreed to learn some songs I’ve written in a gospel style. I could only take those songs so far, and the changes and ideas they brought to the music was inspiring.
I met these folks last April through my friends Sally and Craig Meyers when I was working in San Angelo. We went to hear a rehearsal, and I was completely filled with the spirit of their music. I got inspired over the next couple of months and wrote and rewrote some songs in that style. When I knew I was going to be returning to San Angelo, I asked whether they might consider learning and singing the songs. They agreed, and their enthusiasm was a blessing.
After some rehearsal and exchange of ideas I was able to record each song in a rough version. I am hopeful that I can return and we can continue this collaboration. For now, here are the songs. I expect them to continue to change.
I am so grateful to the choir at the church and to Pastor Pope, and Sally and Craig, for all their work to make this collaboration possible. It’s like a dream come true to hear these pieces sung this way.
The songs include: No Way to the Mountain. Love’s Gonna Wake Me In the Morning. Room For More Love. Wander Through the Wilderness.
