AWAKEN THE DAWN Choral Collection features seven selections arranged for choir and worship team from the recording, AWAKEN THE DAWN, as recorded by Keith & Kristyn Getty. They, along with co-writer, Stuart Townend, have given the church several profound songs over the last few years, many of which are becoming congregational standards across multiple denominations. This collection features a few of their newest songs.
The choral recording of this collection features the instrumental tracks from AWAKEN THE DAWN, produced and arranged by Grammy Award and Dove Award winning producer, Phil Naish. The orchestrations from this recording display the musical talents of Rob Mathes. Choral and worship team arrangements were written to these tracks by Dave Williamson, staying true to the contemporary harmonization and styling from the original recording. As Keith and Kristyn share these songs in their concerts, these arrangements can be used to join with them in their performance. However, they are equally intended to serve your need for music with your choir, worship team and orchestra week in and week out. The instrumental tracks have not been altered in any way from their original recording; however, Dave Williamson has written additional orchestration which is not included on the accompaniment track, in order to provide the full complement of instrumental parts commonly used in many church orchestras.
Each of the songs is included on the Accompaniment Split Track. However, additional track mixes are provided for "Come, People of the Risen King," "When Trials Come," and "Benediction (May the Peace of God)." The track for "When Trials Come" includes an Irish fiddle solo, but you have the option of selecting a track with or without the solo, just in case you have others in your congregation who might join your choir in this special feature. Also, "Benediction (May the Peace of God)" has both a full version and a shortened version track, giving you a couple of options for how that song can be used.
Also included in this book are congregational arrangements of each of the songs, provided with the intent to allow you to use those in your services, provided that you have the appropriate copyright licenses to do so. The full complement of products is available with this collection. We hope that you will find this resource useful in your music ministry.
