Because He Lives, By Sally DeFord
You can hear the piece at Sally DeFord’s website here to familiarize yourself with it.
Here are the SATB parts for you to practice on your own. I recommend practicing in the order that the files are listed. Start with your solo part slow. Then practice it solo at tempo. Then practice it slow with your part emphasized but with the other parts in the background. Then practice it at tempo with your part emphasized. Finally, practice it with all the parts together and see if you can hold your own.
This piece is challenging, so, please spend the time on your own to learn it well before we meet.
Here is the accompaniment to practice with as well:
