Acappella Company

During its 20 years of existence, Acappella has quietly gone about building a reputation of unparalleled excellence as the premier all-vocal group of the Christian music industry. CCM Update perhaps defined them best as "four-charming, thoughtful artists - these four talented gents are 'the franchise'." Part of this success is due to their compelling on-stage presence in well over 100 concerts a year. They have encountered sell-out crowds all over the United States, Canada, Brazil, Europe, Australia, South Africa, China, Jamaica, as well as the French West Indies.

Millions of people worldwide have been exposed to the unique music of Acappella through national television appearances, and by hearing them as the "voice" of Sony Camcorder commercials. Most Acappella fans, however, know them from albums that have won them the reputation for "superb quality". These albums include We Have Seen His Glory, Rescue, and Acappella Hymns For all the World which Release Magazine praised for "flawless vocals". The publication added further that "this foursome has vocal harmonies down to a science - no, make that an art."

With sales of well over two million albums, Acappella continues to produce outstanding projects. One of their more recent albums, Beyond a Doubt, features the single "If There Were No God" which reached #7 on CCM's national music countdown. A more recent project, Act Of God has been called one of "Acappella's most sophisticated and brilliant release to date."

The Acappella Company began as a dream in the mind of young Keith Lancaster. With an exceptional vocal range, and a unique ability to compose memorable songs, Keith recorded his first album, singing all the parts a cappella, at an early age. Now, as the founder of The Acappella Company, Keith heads up producing the unique and diverse a cappella projects, using the finest all-vocals techniques, technology, and voices available. While still heavily involved with leadership in The Acappella Company, Keith also works as a Worship Minister in the Nashville area. You can find him every weekend before more than 3000 people at the Madison Church Of Christ. He is also director of a small singing group at David Lipscomb University.

"Glorious God" is the second release in the popular "Praise & Harmony" series, which features a wonderful choir of nearly 300 mixed-voice singers who sing an uplifting collection of 25 songs of worship. These joyous songs make us want to get up and sing along, and a vocal training disc is also included, so that we can even learn and memorize the SATB harmony parts! Favorites are hard to pick here, because founder Keith Lancaster's sure touch is everywhere—three songs, many of the arrangements and the production are his. The soaring bass line of "Let Us Worship," the tender "I Worship You, Almighty God," "Holy and Anointed One" with its sweet refrain, "Your name is like honey on my lips, your spirit like water to my soul…", the inspirational "The Battle Belongs to the Lord," the call and response "Hallowed Be Thy Name," Keith Lancaster's own "Worthy Lord," "One Thing I Ask" and "Glory and Honor," the powerful "He Is Jehovah," the rhythmic round "King of Kings," the title tune "O What A Glorious God," "Celebrate Jesus," one of our favorite tunes, "Down To The River," "Christian Jubilee" and the rich crescendos of "Days Of Elijah…" each of these is a well-chosen gem. One of the most prolific Contemporary Christian ministries, with 27 titles, Acappella Company is also one of our favorites, because the music and lyrics are filled with love, and, in the words of their slogan, "you can hear it in our voice." We can, and we know you'll love "Glorious God!" Includes a vocalist training CD to help you learn your part (soprano, alto, tenor or bass) on each of these great songs. This set is a wonderful teaching tool for churches and singing groups.

Twenty four years have passed since Tennessee-based Acappella Company first began their quiet ministry together, the dream of a young Keith Lancaster. For years an all-male quartet and now a sextet, Acappella has recorded over 26 excellent CDs and established its reputation as the premier all-vocal group of the Christian music industry. Lancaster again is producer of the album, and we are treated to several more Lancaster originals, "fullness of God," "all men will know," "to whom shall we go," "radiance of God's glory," "be devoted," the wonderful "Lord save me," "no one ever," and the powerful final cut, "a prayer of david." Ten songs in total, all a cappella. Although there are some cool pix of the group hanging out in some sort of greasy spoon in the liner notes, the Acappella Company isn't about glorifying themselves, as even the singers' names are only mentioned once, in small print—the focus is on Jesus and their ministry. Their slogan is, "hear it in our voice," and we can, and so can the millions of people who have seen this great vocal group perform and/or bought a CD. We loved every cut of "Radiance," Contemporary Christian a cappella at its very finest!

The ministry of Paris, Tennessee's The Acappella Company and Keith Lancaster continues beautifully with the Lancaster-produced "Heaven and Earth" by the four young men who call themselves Acappella. Lancaster's writing talents are everywhere on this CD, "War With Myself," "Emergency," "You Are There," "Glory and Honor," "Gone Away" and "Take Me There" feature words and music by himself or with the group. The group's Gary Evans wrote "Y.R.A.G. Radio Segue," "Dime Rhyme Segue" was written by Matt Nunnally, and Nicolas Dunbar shared writing credits on "War With Myself" and "Take Me There." 12 strong cuts, notable for their contemporary sound and feel, with flavors of hip-hop, jazz, r&b and other genres, with steady, understated guest beatbox by Tony Brown. But the message of Christian faith and belief shines strongly throughout, riding the natural vocal talents and deep feeling of these extraordinary young men. One of the best Contemporary Christian CDs we've ever heard!

We have come to expect certain things from 4-man Acappella, one of the most talented and prolific Gospel groups. First, that producer Keith Lancaster would pen and arrange at least half the songs, and second, that the deeply felt leads and harmonies would be perfect. "Hymns" surprises in that it's a cover CD, with only arrangements from Mr. Lancaster. That said, the arrangements are incredible! 10 songs" "All Hail The Power," "When I Survey/Old Rugged Cross," "Softly and Tenderly," the driving, rhythmic "Rock of Ages," "Holy, Holy, Holy," a jazzy, joyous "In The Garden," "Just As I Am," the stunning "Amazing Grace," a reggae-flavored "Blessed Assurance" and a personal favorite, " It Is Well." It is as if we are hearing these beautiful songs for the first time. Another triumph for Acappella!

The Acappella Company brings us another Contemporary Christian winner from the 3-part "Praise and Worship" series from Tennessee. Again, the names, pictures and indeed any personal information about the mixed-voice chorus are omitted from the liner notes, placing the focus squarely on the music and the message. The purpose of the CD being to glorify Jesus, not the egos of the singers, we respect this and find it commendable. The songs are largely originals written by Keith Lancaster, Gary Miller and John K. Green.16 upbeat, positive songs, from "Give Thanks," "Shout of Praise" and "More" to "Open My Heart," "Lord, I Want to Be a Servant," the title tune and "I'm Free." There's not really a weak cut here, and the feeling and spirit carry throughout. Recommended!

Keith Lancaster's Acappella Company of brings us another finely crafted collection of 16 original songs by Acappella Praise & Worship. Keith has produced the album, with Gary Miller, who also wrote, or co-wrote, and composed a number of lovely songs: "We Will Sing," "Beautiful Lamb," "Lord We Love You," "Plenty Good News," "Lord" and "Holy Lord." Keith Lancaster wrote and composed "Hear the Voice of The Lord," "Covenant of Love," "O Lord, Deliver Me," "Walking in the Light," "I Am Unworthy," "One Thing I Ask" and "Lift Up My Soul." Gary Moyers has also written and composed "And So I Bow" and "O Magnify The Lord;" and the title tune was written and composed by Jon Mark Hurley. All of these Contemporary Christian songs are inspirational, feel-good songs of faith that lend themselves to singing along with the vocalists. All the lyrics are thoughtfully included in the liner notes. A beautiful collection from the good folks in Paris, Tennessee!

One of the most prolific and successful ministries, on every level, is that of the Contemporary Christian group Acappella, produced by visionary songwriter and arranger Keith Lancaster. Every one of their many CDs, going back to the 1980s, features immaculate production and excellence in vocals, songwriting and arranging, driven by a deep faith in God and their ministry. "Hymns" is no exception, and features 12 hymns written back as early as 1815 (the words to all are included in the nicely-done liner notes), arranged by Lancaster and members of the group. Dated and dry? HardlyŸjust listen to the driving contemporary rhythms in the arrangements of "Great Is Thy Faithfulness" and "Burdens Are Lifted At Calvary." Beautiful harmonies and timeless words add up to another winner for Acappella!

"Fellowshipping with one another as we're walking in the light" is the opening couplet of the title track and spiritual message of this 1988 recording. The beginning of the album sounds exactly like the 'sound' we've come to expect from Keith Lancaster who wrote all the songs but the three traditional tunes. Sweet harmonies on top of an upbeat rhythm create an enjoyable contemporary spiritual sound that is nicely juxtaposed with the traditional gospel tunes, "For The Lost" and "View That Holy City." Just when we're getting complacent, a driving sampled rhythm provides a feel of the most contemporary rock a cappella. That's "Well On My Way." What a production! The voices of Rodney Britt, Wayburn Dean, Gary Moyers and George Pendergrass integrate so well it seems impossible to imagine any other lineup even when we know change did come.

The long-running success story that is the Acappella Company is based upon immaculate production, strong original songwriting, and an unwavering faith in the Creator. Produced by visionary Keith Lancaster, who wrote a portion of the material (the rest written by the group themselves), the four men of Acappella intrigue the ear with harmonies that can be reminiscent of Crosby, Stills and Nash, or classic three-part triad. The uptempo 'Ready To Go' is stirring and jubilant, while 'Begins' has a descending progression and timely modulation that is irresistibly catchy. The percolating bass, insistent refrain, and recitation vocal of the title track, 'All That I Need,' drives the message home. Sonically, the mix is richly articulated and defined, without an excess of gloss.

It seems important to this reviewer to follow the contributions of different singers to the legacy of outstanding a cappella music which has eventuated from Keith Lancaster. This recording was released in 1993 and features the voices of Duane Adams, Wayburn Dean, George Pendegrass and Gary Moyers (who is now president of the Ministries). All but two of these inspirational songs were written by Keith who also produced the album. It's a strong, rich, full recording with overdubbing aplenty to create textures which vary from rock ("Only Truth") through R&B ("Lead Me To Rest") into the jazz chord opening of "Special Kind Of Love" and on through the light reggae sound and rhythm of "Long Way To Go." Rhythms and rhymes alike all point the listener toward the Lord. It's a wonderful ministry of song.

It's hard to believe! Huh? What? It's hard to believe that the snare and drum on "Do Not Be Afraid" are vocal. But it's sampling! Sampling shmampling. To be unable to dispel the illusion of instruments, even under headphones, is something special! We're talkin' audio trompe l'oeil here folks. By the way, who is singing bass? That's one of the deepest purist bass lines we've ever heard. Beyond a doubt the more things change with Acappella, the more they stay the same - terrific! There are songs which have arrangements so simple that the fine harmony of four voices, without any studio trickery, carry the message and you don't get distracted by the music. There is an addition of jazz chording that expands the possibilities of the group in exciting directions. Acappella just keeps getting better!

Tennessee-based The Acappella Company is a prolific mixed Contemporary Christian chorus, and "In His Presence" is part of their 3-part "Praise and Worship" series. The size of the group their names or a photo are conspicuously absent from the liner notes, which only have the lyrics to all this original music, written mostly by Keith Lancaster, John K. Green and Gary Miller. We feel that this is purposely done, placing the focus on the music and the message and taking it away from the singers—and we find this authentic and refreshing. That description also applies to the music, all joyous a cappella. 16 feel-good songs, from "God Has Smiled On Me," "Let Us Worship" and "He Will Be Raised Up," to "The Lord Reigns Forever," the title tune and "Jesus Will Fix It." The A Cappella Company has always been one of our favorites, and we especially like this series! Recommended.

Duane Adams who sang with the quartet is still writing and has a couple of compositions in addition to collaborating with Keith on the slow, profound and satisfying title track, "Act Of God." The other members of the current band have made significant writing and arranging contributions. They are Gary Moyers, Gary Miller, Kevin Schaffer and Steve Reischl. The production is over the top! Multi-tracking and some signal processing yields a complex texture to all the songs whose tempo is definitely rock and the fullness of a large choral group to the slower songs. We believe that our secular a cappella fans should try this recording because, musically, it is a amazing piece of work.

A wildly-cheering and clapping, fingers-to-the-sky audience sings along and urges their boys on. And Acappella gives it all right back: Gospel ("I Feel Good," "Roll Jordan, Roll," "Holy City," "This Little Light of Mine" and "Amazing Grace"), Reggae ("Everybody Said," and "Shut De Do,"), Doo-Wop ("Love Is The Power," "Victory In Jesus," "Hush," and the finger-snapping "Jesus Knows"), Contemporary Christian ("Sweet Fellowship" and "Peace Be Still"), and even a jazzy faux-instrument a cappella gem called "Instrupella." It's all feel-good, Jesus-loving music, and you don't need to bring your French-English dictionary!

One of the premier groups in Christian/gospel a cappella, "Acapella" has released over three dozen albums, and counting. This CD is a long-awaited "best-of" collection, and an exemplary introduction to their musical message. This gifted amalgamation demonstrates a truly astonishing facility within a number of different songwriting styles: "Get To The Point" has a hook that would be a hit on pop radio, "God is Standing By" has a Caribbean flavor. The production of "It Was the Truth" shows how a simple vocal effect can distinguish a song. "Sing His Praises" again is a textbook example of production and arranging wizardry: the syncopated "keyboard" octaves, the placement of the various voices (panning), and the sixteenth-note bass line create atmosphere, a tension and release. You will love this record.

Another two-for-one re-release featuring 18 songs. The Acappella Company has created a dynasty, and their recordings are always exceptionally well produced and arranged. When they interpret a gospel tune or spiritual, however, they absolutely shine. The versatility of the stylistic embellishments that they routinely employ is amazing, and it's these nuances – a bar of rhythmic counterpoint here, a half step swoop into a repeating phrase there – that bring such lasting satisfaction. 'Old Time Gospel' is exactly that, while 'Stamp of Approval' is lifted straight from the Philly school of '70's soul; 'There Is No Excuse' is an midtempo raver that is part O'Jays and a little bit urban too. Lots of goodies here.

How perfectly appropriate to review a wedding CD on Valentine's Day! Some songs will be fresh to the ears while others have been around wedding chapels for years. 'You Are Everything' is a contemporary song that is similar to a James Taylor song in both title and melody. The allure of 'The Wedding Song' has always been a mystery, however this arrangement has been modified for the better with restructuring of the rhythmic and harmonic foundations. It is a much more enjoyable song. The same Don McLean that was drinking whiskey and rye also composed a few love songs: 'And I Love You So' is a favorite on this collection. 'A Whole New World' is the signature Disney delegate and a perfect duet for any ceremony. 'The Lord's Prayer' is an adaptation of the original, though lyrically simplified it is harmonically rich. This collection is mixed voices and all songs are suitable for either male or female solo. Each song is represented twice: one version is the studio version and the other is an accompanied version minus the solo for ceremonial use. All songs have a youthful zest and would fall in the contemporary Christian pop category.

Ten of Acappella's best songs - in Spanish! Some friends from Mexico City came and tutored Acappella as they retracked some of their more popular songs. The result? An excellent Acappella release in, what we are told, excellent Spanish.

Characteristically, 10 of the 12 songs are written by producer Keith Lancaster: "Don't Be Talkin' 'Bout Friends," "I Can Walk," "Now To Him," "Piper Song" ( about Keith's daughter ), "La Song," a strong arrangement of "He Leadeth Me," "Growin' Up In The Lord," "Water From The Well," "Share What We've Got" and "Livin' Inside." The excellent songwriting is rivaled only by the spirited leads and soaring harmonies. Inspiring and absolutely beautiful!

Christmas Medley"
Now You're Here
Merry Christmas
The Reason For The Season

Contemporary Christian group Acappella's Christmas CD features many original compositions with the sophisticated production for which the group is known, along with several traditionals, such as "Go Tell It On The Mountain." The consonant and stirring harmonies are intricately woven, and the group favors effects processing on some of the vocal tracks, giving them a modern edge. Even when singing about the birth of Christ thousands of years ago, the songs can be energetic and uptempo, such as "Merry Christmas," with it's swinging walking bass, and vocal slides. "The Reason For The Season" meanders through a doo wop feel into a 6/8 meter, while "That's What I Love About Christmas" is a whimsical jazz-influenced number, with vocal trumpet and trombone solos. The group adds occasional percussion or keyboard to ornament certain tracks, but Acappella's vocal arrangements, and the quality of the performances, are already as filled with bounty as Santa's sleigh!

Carols

Angels We Have Heard On High
O Holy Night
Hark The Herald Angels Sing
Away In A Manger
The First Noel
O Come All Ye Faithful
What Child Is This
Joy To The World
Little Town of Bethlehem
Silent Night

The jubilant voices of the Acappella Company are amazingly prolific, having recorded dozens of albums through the years. Their inspirational themes are blended in a contemporary-meets-gospel style. "Carols" was released in 1993, and features the group performing all of the best-loved holiday gems: "O Holy Night, The First Noel," "Joy To The World" and "Silent Night," plus six more. While the production and arrangements are certainly not plain, by comparison to their original compositions, they are restrained. "Silent Night" retains the simplicity of this ubiquitous melody, but improvises upon it, adding warmth and depth with a resonant bass and perfectly-timed harmonic backing. You can't go wrong with this one!

Acappella Company Songbooks

The exceptionally talented quartet the Acappella Company has produced many recordings during their twenty years together. Though four voices only, their use of studio production techniques allow them to create a pastiche of sound that can be challenging to re-create, and the vocal ranges, particularly the in the tenor, can be as high as F above high C. In addition, though in general the arrangements are TTBB, the number of voice parts does vary between songs. In order to make the arrangements more accessible for quartets and quintets, the Acappella Company has attempted to simplify some of their more complex charts. While not able to analyze every song in detail, we have attempted to provide an overview of each songbook.
