Follow Me

Borrowing from two of the apostles, Lee Dengler sets the words of Jesus to His potential followers as He explains His ministry and the requirements of “followship.” Follow Me is written in Early American hymn style with open harmonies and a folk-like melody. The gradual building of layers of sound makes this three-part anthem sound more difficult than it is. The overlapping gesture of “Follow me…follow me…come and follow me…” is very effective.

O Magnum Mysterium

Lee Dengler’s setting of O Magnum Mysterium masterfully depicts the awesome wonder expressed in the text. A sense of “divine mystery” is heard and felt in this incredible mixture of close harmonies and dissonances, lush, open chords, and gently shifting meter. Exquisite!

O Come to Him

Lee Dengler and Joseph Rojahn have penned what could easily become a new hymn. O Come to Him is a peaceful invitation to follow Christ and turn all of your troubles over to His care. Much repetition makes this anthem easy to learn, yet the constant layering of vocal textures and building of harmonies give this “simple” anthem a feeling of glory and grandeur.

Pacem

The familiar Latin text Dona nobis pacem is set here with great beauty. This is a timeless piece so appropriate for the here and now. We are all praying for peace in the world. Lee Dengler’s exquisite vocal lines and masterful choral texturing combine to make this classic Latin prayer an anthem of thoughtful contemplation and soothing assurance. Pacem will help your congregation to express their prayer in a deep and moving way. The violin obbligato adds beauty and delicacy to this lovely composition.

Poverty Carol

Lee Dengler creates a gentle mood with this four-part a cappella arrangement of the Welsh carol, Poverty Carol. Lovely in its simplicity of both melody and text, Poverty Carol reiterates to us the fact that Jesus was of humble, lowly birth, and that it is the least of us who shall find favor in his service. This quiet, contemplative moment is useful for concert or worship.

Starry Skies

Gently impressionistic writing characterizes this tranquil choral tableau from the imaginations of Lee Dengler and J. Paul Williams. The writers tell the old, old story in a fresh new way, giving choirs everywhere something destined to become a Christmas classic. Listen for the perfect interweaving of Angels We Have Heard on High into the original material. Starry Skies is simply beautiful.

Things That Never Die

Description: An extraordinary text by Charles Dickens provides the inspiration for this excellent concert/festival work. "The pure, the bright, the beautiful that stirred our hearts in youth... the striving after better hopes; these things can never die." Now available for mixed, women's and men's choirs.

Upon a Sinner's Cross

Christ's passion on Golgotha is the center of this original Lenten anthem. It examines the two thieves that were crucified with our Lord. The beautiful vocal lines raise to a cry of "Kyrie Eleison" as God's perfect Son hangs there "Upon a guilty sinner's cross." This will prove to be an unforgettable musical experience for your Good Friday services.

We Remember You

Description: This nicely flowing communion anthem is highlighted by a sweet melody set in a hymn style. Optional congrregation and a soprano descant crown the final verse effectively. The choral parts include a mix of 2-part mixed and SATB lines, which make this easily learned in one rehearsal.

Worthy Is the Lamb

Unique colors and textures, a dramatic accompaniment, and an emotional text make for a passionate choral for Lent. Worthy Is the Lamb moves in and out of major, minor, and modal tonalities, with mournful, mysterious sounding verses and a majestic refrain. Very moving.
