Proclaim 2022 – individual parts

Here are the individual musical selections from Proclaim 2022, held at First Presbyterian Church in Macon, GA. As the booklet says, it is an evening of Congregational Singing for the Glory of Christ.

So it is much more than “just a concert” or “just an evening of music at a church”. First, the congregation turns to the inside aisle and sings to the other side – which changes the sound AND the experience for all involved. Secondly, the building acoustics itself radically support congregational singing – it is just fun to sing in that room. [The flip side of that room is that we must be judicious on instrumental usage – it is really easy to overload the room acoustically speaking.]
