After a few trials and tribulations, and sterling work by Ulisse and her associates, Donna has published a songbook, a companion to the recently-released Christmas CD of the same name.
The book contains sheet music, written in the keys that Ulisse sings each song on the album, guitar chords and lead vocal lines. It includes in-depth commentary relating to the song-writing process, photographs of the songwriters as well as the scripture that inspired each song.
The sheet music was created by Kerry Chater and Lynn Gillespie Chater; and Nancy Beaudette and Sara Ostrovsky prepared the files ready for printing.
The songbook, priced $19.95, is available from the Donna Ulisse online store.
