If you want to purchase in quantity, see the other Earth and Spirit Songbook products (2-8 copies for $23 each with free shipping, or 10 plus for $20 each). This is a great time to supply your choir with this 200-page resource of 110 songs of Earth and peace.
This anthology of 110 old and new songs is a great resource for educators, song leaders, church musicians and anyone who celebrates our amazing planet. The Earth and Spirit Songbook provides entertaining, educational songs of ecology, world humanity and peace with participatory choruses for groups to sing. Compiled and edited by musician-composer Jim Scott, it includes songs by many well-known contemporary songwriters.
– Earth education – for children and adults
– Social action, environmental justice issues, etc.
– Earth celebrations – earth oriented holidays
– Beauty, abundance, community, rights of passage, etc.
– World humanity and peace
The songs not only teach about the earth, in scientific terms and representing a variety of spiritual traditions, but also make a collective musical statement by the many musicians who have made ecology and peace a part of their artistic work.
Music directors, performers, and all literate accompanists will find it a great resource, as it includes full piano accompaniments, even for rounds. Some arrangements are more elaborate than typically found in hymnbooks or commercial sheet music, and include chord symbols to be universally useful to all musicians. Many songs also include some vocal harmony, so choirs will find a wealth of short-cut choral pieces useful for the weekly production of anthems, and special music, etc.

A song for the Christmas, solstice, holiday season that might be used anytime for celebrating a birth. The piano is an SATB four part harmonization. A more diverse choral arrangement (different from verse to verse) is available from Jim Scott.
In a somewhat traditional carol style this is a song for the Christmas season and carries a message of rebirth and hope. The birth of a child in the dark of winter is something we all can get excited about, makes us all feel like a family and gives us faith in the future.
