Music for All

Jul 24, 2022   //   by bcp   //   News  //  No Comments

Sharon Dennis and Doris Au MacDonald, composers of the BCP music, are releasing all published music for free. “God has given us this music, we are only the channels for getting it to everyone else,” says MacDonald. Now, if a church, organization or individual wants to use the leadsheets, accompaniments, choral/ensemble works or instrumental arrangements, all that’s necessary is to either contact the composers or download free from this website’s Store tab. Of course, if you prefer a ready-made product, you can also pay to receive it, cost + shipping.

In the works is a Lessons and Carols package, using all BCP music. We hope to have it ready by this fall.

Long Awaited King

New Christmas CD

From jazz to jig to joyful rock, “Long Awaited King” has it all and is sure to become your favorite Christmas CD! Includes originals as well as innovative arrangements of traditional carols.

“When I hear “old” Christmas songs on a “new” Christmas album, there is something I look for. Rather than one more artist doing one more performance of the same old song in the same old way, I like to hear a fresh approach, something that will catch my ear if I hear it flipping through the stations, but with enough of those peculiar, familiar elements that reawaken fond memories from childhood.

I found precisely this in a number of the songs in “Long Awaited King,” from the jazz feel of O Come, O Come Emanuel, We Three Kings, and Silent Night, the Celtic styling of What Child is This/Greensleeves Jig, and in the energy of Good Christian Men Rejoice.

I was pleased with both the music and the Biblical truth in the original works, O Tiny Child and Long Awaited King, and I enjoyed the vocal harmonies throughout the album.” ~~ Darren


“I loved the uplifting message in God Has Come To Us! The tune is catchy and likely to stay in my head all day! The arrangement of What Child is This/Greensleeves Jig was great, taking one of my favorite Christmas songs and giving it a wonderful Irish feel!” ~~ Wendy


“As I listened to “Long Awaited King” I was impressed with the style and worship feeling. You have given serious thought to the choice of songs, and the lyrics of each number contain rich meaning. Your blended voices and very melodic harmonies are pleasant to the ears.” ~~ Ray


“Now THAT’s Christmas music! It’s soothing and calming to listen to, especially after a day of stress – shopping, driving, or just dealing with angry people. When I listened, I closed my eyes and thought of that cold night in a stable in Bethlehem when Jesus was born. (What Child Is This, Silent Night) It put me in a better mood, and I ended up singing/humming Good Christian Men Rejoice all evening.” ~~ Lynn
