This Little Light of Mine
by Dean Wedel
SATB a cappella – CP 1246 – 3:00
This song has been around for a century and Dean’s new arrangement really hits the mark of joyful and approachable choral singing. High school choirs, Community choirs and Church choirs will love this arrangement. Words from the greatest teacher of all time: “Let your light shine before men” Matthew 5:16
