Great Choir Songs

Suggested Songs for Your Music Ministry

“And Can It Be”
Arranged by Richard Kingsmore

This is a great arrangement of a wonderful hymn. Right when you think it’s going to end, there is an unexpected key change that leads into a choral ending. The last two pages are a series of amens that are sung back and forth between the men and ladies. We chose to change these to the phrase amazing love instead.
