This collection from Grayson Warren Brown provides 12 new hymns, psalms, spirituals and gospel-style songs. Marked by his distinctive passion and energy, the music encourages full participation by the faithful, whatever the setting.

Especially appropriate for Easter season, the title track is a grand, traditional-style hymn, complete with parts for full choir, piano, brass, timpani and strings. An impressive horn section—saxophone, trumpet, trombone—and rock ensemble back the gospel choir on the jazzy "Psalm 147/Alleluia."

Arranged for choir and organ, "Song of Farewell" is a breathtaking new setting for funeral liturgies. Everyone will recognize the classic gospel hymn "Down by the Riverside" and its familiar refrain, "ain't gonna study war no more." It appears here in a new arrangement by Rick Modlin.

Designed for use in praise and prayer, retreats, missions and liturgy, these songs offer a message of hope—hope in Christ, the Morning Star, who has broken the darkness forever. Parish music directors, retreat directors, prayer groups and faith communities large and small will find something to use and love in Now That the Morning Has Broken the Darkness.
