Wen Ti (聞笛)/Lift your eyes unto the hills$25.00 Add to cart
Wen Ti (The Flute Plays) was written in the 9th century. It describes beautiful bamboo flute music coming from a nearby home; the poet wonders who is playing the lovely tune. The flowing pentatonic melody is used here with new words for various sections of a worship service: call to worship, assurance of pardon, doxology, and benediction.
This arrangement was commissioned for a service at the 2018 Calvin Worship Symposium. You can hear it at the following times in the video:
11:47 Call to Worship: “Lift Your Eyes unto the Hills” (based on Psalm 121 and 124)
21:44 Assurance of Pardon: “God Is Gracious to Forgive” (evoking Colossians 1:12-15)
1:22:56 Doxology “To the One Who’s Shown Us Love” (from Revelation 1:4-6)
Anthem for SATB choir and piano with optional C instrument; includes full score and C instrument part.
What Wondrous Love (WONDROUS LOVE) – string quartet$25.00 Add to cart
“What Wondrous Love” is so elusively beautiful that composers while likely never tire of writing new arrangements of it. This arrangement combines the simple honesty of the folk guitar with the emotional depth of string orchestra. The hymn is a staple of Lent and Holy Week, but is also fitting for a funeral, as it begins with the story of redemption and ends in eternity.
Score for string quartet, including C clef for viola
أبانا الذي في السماء ليتقدس اسمك/Abana in HeavenRead more
“Abana” is sung by Christians throughout the Arabic-speaking world. This haunting, yet vigorous melody beautifully captures the words of the Lord’s Prayer.
My arrangemnt that appears in hymnals makes heavy use of a drone in a hymn texture. That’s lovely, but not like the recordings I’ve heard of the song from Egypt. This SATB and piano arrangement is more along those lines: almost Klezmer-like use of the harmonic scale, a rhythmic accompaniment with lots of rubato, and vocal harmonies that tend to move in thirds.
This anthem is scored for SATB and piano and can be purchased from GIA Music.

우리 보좌앞에 모였네 (Vision) is a praise song by Hyung-won Koh based on Revelation 7:9-10. It’s a lovely song, and representative of the tuneful, heartfelt worship songs that the Korean church sings. With the help of James Ju and Paul Han, I translated it into English. Later, I revisited the song, adding a piano accompaniment, instrumental parts, and a smooth-as-butter descant for strings and flute.
