Adoração/All of My Heart$0.00 – $15.00 Select options
A while back I discovered the Brazilian congregational songwriting duo of Rubem Amorese and Toninho Zemuner. They write beautiful, singable, meaningful songs. In Portuguese. This is a translation of their song “Adoração,” a simple and heartfelt song of dedication. Below is their original recording.

Before Your Manger, Here I Stand / Ich steh an deiner Krippen hier$25.00 Add to cart
Looking for a Christmas piece that’s a little off the beaten path? This beloved German Christmas carol has been newly translated and arranged. The choir parts are not at all difficult, and the anthem can be accompanied by piano alone. However, if you do have flute, recorder, guitar, or strings available, the music becomes absolutely exquisite.
Anthem for SATB choir, flute, recorder, classical guitar, and strings. Download includes score and parts; purchase price allows you to print as many copies as you need for your ensemble.

KINGSFOLD is a fitting tune for this hymn’s calm confidence in Jesus’s comfort, and this Just Add People arrangement includes a fresh piano accompaniment with a sparkling intro and outro. This arrangement is also available with the texts “O Sing a Song of Bethlehem” and “We Sing the Mighty Power of God.” The string quartet arrangement available below can also be used with congregational singing and adds lyrical interludes between each verse.

Nothing beats Beethoven’s original as found in the 9th Symphony, but if your pianist or praise band is going to lead “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore You” this arrangement really sparkles–and the strings really bring it to another level.
Keur Moussa Magnificat (Mon âme exalte le Seigneur)$35.00 Add to cart
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.
Lo, How a Rose (ES IST EIN ROS)$25.00 – $35.00 Select options[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/02-Lo-How-A-Rose.mp3"][/audio]
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.[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/lo_how_a_rose.mp3"][/audio]
Mary’s Song (Our King of Peace)$0.00 – $35.00 Select options[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/marys_song.mp3"][/audio]
Wendell Kimbrough’s setting of Mary’s Song captures the wonder, fear, and obedience of Mary’s response to Gabriel’s message. The song is a perfect fit for Advent, Christmas, and Lessons and Carols services. The choral arrangement places the choir alongside folk instruments, which is a lovely marriage for those who lead blended worship.
