DASSEL, MN Gethsemane Lutheran Church Choir of Dassel just released its new CD, “Alleluia.”
The choir intends to perform several songs recorded on the CD at church services in the next few months. The first performance will be Sunday, Nov. 16, at 10:30 a.m. at the church. Instrumentalists will also be accompanying the choir. The public is welcome to attend this service of music and worship. Coffee will be served following the service.
The CD is a labor of love on behalf of the church choir, the instrumentalists, and the accompanists, said Barb Kay of Dassel, the church’s music director. The CD contains a variety of 16 songs which contain verses from the Psalms and Isaiah.
The songs include “What a Friend We Have in Jesus,” “First Song of Isaiah,” “Come, Now is the Time to Worship,” and “Precious Lord, Take My Hand.”
Two songs are performed by the Gethsemane Gents. Six instrumentalists from Dassel accompanied the choir on five of the songs. Andrea Lien, a former Dassel-Cokato High School graduate, was the computer graphic artist who volunteered her time and talent to produce the cover of the CD.
The CD is for sale at the church office, as well as in stores in both Dassel and Cokato, including Peterson Pharmacy and Keaveny Pharmacy.
