    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.

  • O Bless the Lord, My Soul (ST THOMAS)

    Add to cart


    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.
