CRC PUBLICATIONS SELLS CHORAL CATALOG
As many long-time subscribers will remember, we published several choral compositions and inserted them in Reformed Worship as part of the Hymn of the Month column. CRC Publications now announces that Selah Publishing Co., Inc., has taken over the distribution and sales of ail choral titles previously published by CRC Publications. These include anthems by Dale Grotenhuis, John Ferguson, Roy Hopp, Jacobus Kloppers, Alfred V Fedak, David Folkerts, Emily Brink, and Jan Overduin. All the titles are based on hymns from the Psalter Hymnal and most of the anthems allow for the congregation to sing along on some of the stanzas. You may purchase the anthems directly from Selah by calling (800)852-6172 or writing to Selah at PO Box 3037, Kingston, NY 12401. A flyer listing these anthems is also available from Selah upon request.
In RW 35, the new hymn "Wordless, Ancient Earth's Foundations" by Andrew Donaldson was included (on p. 19) with a note to contact Hope Publishing Company for permission to reproduce. Instead, please contact Seraph Music, which holds the copyright to this hymn:
