Where Heart and Heaven Meet  

These settings by Alice Parker from the Melodious Accord Hymnal, recorded by The Musicians of Melodious Accord under the direction of Alice Parker, are a perfect companion to the popular Melodious Accord Hymnal. 

 

The Answering Voice:  

the beginnings of counterpoint

opens our ears and voices to a new way of understanding counterpoint.

Drawing on 50 years of teaching and composing Alice Parker envisions a theory or composition class where everyone sings and arrangements grow out of evoked responses to the sung melody.

Composers, conductors, singers, instrumentalists, teachers and students at all levels will be challenged and rewarded by this sound-based approach to theory.

A sequel to The Anatomy of Melody.
