Following the successful release of Revival in 2017, Tony Alonso has arranged an additional 14 hymns for use throughout the liturgical year. Keeping true to the previous form, these editions exhibit the same careful SAB vocal scoring, accompaniment suitable for piano- and guitar-based ensembles, and fine part-writing for additional instruments. Also included is an alternate final stanza with reharmonization and descant. These beloved congregational hymns will find new life through these fresh arrangements for contemporary ensembles. Tony Alonso is a theologian and composer whose work is animated by the diverse needs of the contemporary church. A Cuban-American Roman Catholic, Tony's compositions embrace multicultural musical expressions and reflect a commitment to strong ritual song. His music appears in compilations and hymnals across Christian denominations throughout the world. In 2015, this work was recognized with an invitation to compose the responsorial psalm for the first Mass Pope Francis celebrated in the United States.
