Addison Road Podcast : Shout On

I thought in honor of our final Easter choir rehearsal tonight at 7:30, I would post one of the arrangements we are doing on Sunday for you all to enjoy / mock. This is an early American Hymn called “Shout On” which I have known for some time.

This is the demo that Erica and I do for the choir, so it’s not exactly ready for primetime. You can hear the air conditioner in the background if you really listen hard. We go through and bump up each part and print a version for each.

This arrangement is mine, but on the sheetmusic it reads, “With apologies to Robert Shaw.” Shaw was the great American choral arranger and conductor. This arrangement began as a transcription of his arrangement of the same piece, and basically became mine the second I hit the first chorus. However, I would be remiss not to tip my hat to the gentleman who inspired me.

    sweet. Well done. So, if you’re freelance by next easter, can I give you billuns of dollars to take over our choir? They would love you, and I would love … to have you do it.

    Mike doesn’t know anything that you all don’t, it’s just that every year at around this time I am always threatening to go freelance. It’s just a defense mechanism to fight the temptation to make a run for Cabo on the day before.

    I’ll meet you in Cabo. 1st round is on you. Rounds 2 through 936 are on the CCC credit card. Round 937 is on the FBI agents who come to arrest us.

    Doug,

    You very well may be the coolest Senior Pastor I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.

    Dude, kick ass. Chad, if you could, like, break it down in the middle section and have your peeps do a sort of urban dance thing that would really make it a sweet Easter experience for everybody. As is, though, it still floats my boat and you sound killer, by the way. Erica, my admiration for your ability has officially escalated to your having just inherited a creepy female stalker. Don’t complain – you brought this on yourself.

    Magnificent! A great programmer and producer you may be, Chad, but you will always be at your best when arranging 6-part vocals. You can take the boy out of the singer, but you’ll never take the singer out of the boy. (Um. You know what I mean. In a not-sexy way.)

    Looks like I was only off by a few months! Next year … Choir is all yours.

    Having listened to…and performed from…several of these demos…I now consider myself almost an expert on Chad/Erica choral demos. You see, because I am not a technical musician, in my own parlance that means I really don’t read music, I just listen and remember pretty well, I am blessed in that I get to hear Chad and Erica’s voices over and over and over again as I try to memorize the bass part for his latest, and usually challenging, choir selection. This is one of your finest. Nicely done. By the way, singing in the ABF choir was one of the most enjoyable things I have done in recent years. Thanks for your leadership.
