  • Holy Is the Lord/Santo Es El Señor

    Select options

    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!

  • O the Blood of Jesus

    [audio mp3=""][/audio]


    A staple in African American churches, this chorus is especially fitting during communion, confession, or ministry time. This Just Add People! arrangement leaves lots of options, from a simple groove to more complex rhythms and modulations.

    Piano accompaniment for congregational singing.

  • Sanna, Sannanina – flute/piccolo descant

    Add to cart

    “Sanna, Sannanina” is a delightful South African song that is perfect for joyous Palm Sunday processions. Here I’ve added a flute descant that is almost as rhythmic as the djembe accompaniment. The recording above is an instrumental version with flute and djembe; this descant would also work over the congregation, choir, or praise team singing the song.

    Descants for flute/piccolo. Download also includes SATB hymn with both South African and English texts.

    String quartet parts to accompany Ron Rienstra’s “The Lord Be with You” liturgy (Lift Up Your Hearts 535, 811)

  • Wen Ti (聞笛)/Lift your eyes unto the hills

    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.

  • أبانا الذي في السماء ليتقدس اسمك/Abana in Heaven

    Select options

    “Abana” is sung by Christians throughout the Arabic-speaking world. This haunting, yet vigorous melody beautifully captures the words of the Lord’s Prayer. It can be found in a number of hymnals. For those looking for a more fleshed-out arrangement, my arrangement for piano and strings will support congregational singing well. A choral anthem scored for SATB and piano and can be purchased from GIA Music.
