Rejoice, An A Cappella Hymn Collection (2006)

Updated: Oct 3, 2023


Rejoice, An A Cappella Hymn Collection is the tenth full-length studio album by the Christian music vocal group First Call. It was released on May 16, 2006 on the independent label Discovery House Music. The album is produced by Richard Abercrombie.

It is First Call's first new album in ten years and it's also the return of original member Melodie Tunney, who last appeared on the 1989 album God is Good, but also appeared as a guest vocalist on the 1995 Christmas album Beyond December. It's also a return to the vocal group's a capella roots as the album just features only their voices singing well-known church hymns, as well as, singing some original compositions like their own re-recording of "O Sifuni Mungo" and "Untitled Hymn (Come to Jesus)."

There is minimal use of musical instruments featuring guest musicians Dick Tunney (Melodie Tunney's husband) on the piano, Buddy Green on the harmonica and David Davidson on the violin providing instrumental breaks in between a capella songs.
