"Forget Me Not, O Lord" is a song celebrating the beauties of nature during Spring and Summer. With words by Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf, from his famous talk "Forget Me Not" of October 2011, this song compares the little forget-me-not flower to our own yearnings never to be overlooked or forgotten by the Lord. The song is a good reminder that the Lord loves each of us and will always answer our prayers and give us comfort.
"America, the Beautiful" was written first for an a cappella Women's trio. It is a good to use for times when the venue has no piano or other means of accompaniment. Later, a part for Men (modified SSATB) was added for use in a similar situation when piano accompaniment was not possible. It is essentially the SSA arrangement with added parts for men, mostly combined unison. (This is an especially good choice in situations where the Women singers of the group are more numerous than the men.)
Always a favorite, "Come, Come Ye Saints" SSATB with Violin or Harmonica was written for a Pioneer Day theatrical production. The long introduction with speaking lines could be eliminated. There is also a Women's version "Come, Come Ye Saints" SSAA with Violin and Flute.
Summer is a very satisfying time to create choral music!
