    This energetic Guatemalan song first appeared in Global Songs for Worship (2010). Since then, I have created various arrangements that allow it to be led authentically in other ways. The piano accompaniment captures the rhythmic energy of the song. The choir, flute, and percussion arrangement is perfect for churches that have a flutist who likes a challenge!

    In 2019, Church of the Servant commissioned me to arrange a lovely Magnificat by Keur Moussa. The Keur Moussa community, which is something like the Taizé of Senegal, has developed its own style of singing that combines the beautiful austerity of Catholic chant with the insistent rhythms of West Africa. Trying to remain in the spirit of the original piece, this arrangement is complex, but not flashy; exciting, but still mesmerizing.

    Arrangement for SATB choir, flute, strings, guitar, mbira, shakers, dumbek, and drum set. Purchase price includes full score, all instrumental parts, and permission to make multiple copies for choir.

    One of the most lovely songs of the Advent/Christmas season is turned into a tender jazz ballad. An oft omitted verse is included (“O Flow’r whose fragrance tender…”) and a short soprano solo provides extra vocal texture. This flexible choral anthem includes chord symbols for jazz combo, but it can also be sung a cappella, as in the recording above by the Heinz Chapel Choir of the University of Pittsburgh. The orchestral accompaniment is also flexible, allowing full orchestra or just the strings to support the sound of the choir and piano.

    https://musicblog.gregscheer.com/o_bless-st_thomas.mp3

    This is a string orchestra accompaniment for the hymn tune ST THOMAS, using the text “O Bless the Lord, My Soul.” This hymn of praise is appropriate for Thanksgiving Day, building dedications, and pastor installation services. The festive nature of the arrangement will turn a common hymn into a regal anthem.

    This arrangement is mentioned in Greg’s podcast, “Thanksgiving Brainstorms.”

    Score and parts for violins, viola, cello, double bass, and timpani. Purchase price allows you to print as many copies as you need for your ensemble.

    This arrangement was first written for chamber orchestra for a Lessons & Carols service, then commissioned for full orchestra by the Calvin College Orchestra and their director, Robert Nordling. The recording above is from the Calvin Orchestra’s premiere of the full orchestra version on March 5, 2011.
