Do you know about Solo Thoughts?
It’s a great research tool to help church soloists, musical directors and music committees to find music appropriate to church services — particularly songs for the soloist. It’s called Solo Thoughts and Watchfire Music publishes this quarterly and monthly. We’ve been doing this now for about 8 years.
If you are new to Solo Thoughts, here are more specifics: Solo Thoughts matches 12 to 24 solos per week to each Christian Science Weekly Bible Lesson. It also provides a purchase link to buy in-print sheet music for your church service. This is a very detailed document that cuts your own research time down as well as introducing you to new sacred solo repertoire.
Song Repertoire – that’s the business I’m in. As a performer, and specifically as an inspirational singer, I am constantly searching for that next great piece of music that “fits” with the theme of the sermon, or highlights a text from Scripture, or tells a well-known Bible story in an inspiring way.
I am a hunter/gatherer and I love the hunt! Searching for each gem of a song is indeed a treasure hunt, always an adventure.
During the last four years it has been an exciting privilege to share a lot of great music in my position as soloist with an international congregation. I have received many emails from soloists, church musicians, musical directors and church music committees wanting to have a copy of my Repertoire List so that they might share this music with their own congregation.
