Old Time Religion Medley is an energetic general praise anthem containing four popular
traditional spirituals, including Old Time Religion, Stnndin' iir the Need of Prayer, Down
by the Riverside, and Do, Lord. Suggested corresponding lectionary readings include
Deuteronomy 34: 1-12, Psalm 35: 1-14, Matthew 22: 1-14, and Philippians 4: 1-9. One
basic homiletical theme is serving God through prayer, praise, and thanksgiving.

This rousing medley may be accompanied by keyboard alone, an instrumental ensemble


comprised of 2 trumpets, tenor trombone, bass trombone, guitar, bass, drums, and piano,
or a filly-orchestrated instrumental accompaniment track. The medley is composed of
little musical vignettes from some of the most popular spirituals of all time. Solo
opportunities abound and should be freely assigned depending upon the performance
abilities of the singers. Close ''jazz"harmonies should be carefully tuned and balanced, and
a relaxed "jazz"rhythmic swing should pervade the anthem.

Mark Hayes is an award-winning concert pianist, composer and arranger of sacred


choral, piano, and orchestral music. With over 400 published works to his credit, Mark
has also recorded numerous solo piano albums and has received the Gospel Music
Association's prestigious Dove Award, which is the equivalent to a Grammy in gospel
music. A graduate of Baylor University, he has served as an adjunct professor of
composition at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri.
