An interesting thread on the Singing News forums asks readers to name 10-12 songs they’d love to hear a Southern Gospel group record. [EDIT, 11/7/10: Regrettably, the link is broken, so it has been removed.] I picked the Perrys–I’d love to see a Hits & Hymns 3–and named these songs:
- God Handled it All (Gold City)
- Hard Trials (Cathedrals)
- Leave Your Sorrows and Come Along
- Depths of the Father’s Love (Kingdom Heirs)
- It is Well With my Soul – Each member on a verse, modulating up a fourth (i.e., C to F) for Libbi to sing the final verse.
- Go Right Out
- We Shall See Jesus (Cathedrals) – I think the time might have come for someone to bring this back…I hope the song didn’t die with Glen Payne!
- Bound For the Land of Canaan (Kingsmen)
- One Scarred Hand (Gold City) – It’s almost like the Perrys’ voices were made to sing Kyla Rowland songs. [EDIT: As Matt notes below, perhaps they could do this one acapella.]
- It Will Be Worth it All
- He Lives (Gold City)
- I Stand Redeemed (Legacy Five) – Imagine Libbi on this one!
Obviously, the groups mentioned in the Singing News thread won’t ever record all the songs named, but there’s always the chance they might do some of them, eventually.
