"From the Publisher:" Twenty-three hymn arrangements, traditional gospel songs, and southern gospel favorites, are featured in this treasury for male choirs and ensembles. Mosie Lister has written them in easy accesible 2 part and 4 part voicings, in comfortable keys. TTBB selections always have the melody in the second tenor. Five numbers are a cappella; several pieces are short enough to use as service music. Great for existing men's groups or as a first volume for starting a men's music ministry. A special section is provided with tips on organizing and maintaining male choirs. Sample titles: "Victory in Jesus"; "I Song the Mighty Power of God"; "Just a Little Talk with Jesus"; "Holy, Holy, Holy"; "I'll Have a New Life"; "Come, Thou Almighty King"; "I Saw the Light"; "Steal Away"; "Stand by Me."
Mosie Lister, one of the outstanding Gospel composers of our day, began serious songwriting for Gospel groups in the late 1940s and in 1948 became the arranger for the renowned Statesmen. In 1953 Mosie began publishing his songs under the banner of Mosie Lister Publications, merging with Lillenas in 1969. He was elected to the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 1976. Mosie’s latest works include Alive in Christ, The Old Gospel Ship, Bring Us Back, His Name Is Jesus and Then I Met the Master.
