Ending with a Unique Chord Progression

We extended the ending of Shout to the Lord with a rather interesting series of chords:



This helps extend the 'finale' of the worship service without being too long, as compared to having an entire instrumental reprise of the chorus.

The chords used here are:
A Gb5 F#m Dm/F A

Note that the first 4 chords create a descending bass line, so it feels a little like its ending. However, the transition to chords not found in the key (of A) cause the music to hang on a little longer, and ending on the root chord, A, resolves the built-up tension such that it creates a grander ending.

Nice. I've always wanted to know how to use chords which are normally not in the key to improvise. =)

Maybe try some synchronicity. You're all doing your own thing and you sound tone deaf.

Words abort me if I yield pains to characterize the appearance of the astonishing replica Louis Vuiton bags . Before this, I’m affectionate of grunting on the abstract exhibition of Louis Vuitton logo. Consistently monogram, consistently canvas, can’t it be just bigger to the aboriginal degree? Thank God, this Globe Shopper cabas rises in time to cease my upset.
