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.
At the Throne of Our God$0.00 – $35.00 Select options[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/at_the_throne-orch.mp3"][/audio]
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.
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.
Holy Is the Lord/Santo Es El Señor$0.00 – $20.00 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!

This song sets the story of Isaiah 6 to a Rwandan melody. It gives us a picture of the angels in heaven singing, “Holy, holy, you are holy,” and the third verse reminds us of our hope to join believers from every nation with the angels in giving glory to God.

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.

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.

Oče naš/God, Our Father in Heaven$0.00 – $5.00 Select options
I was introduced to “Oče naš” by a woman who was taking ESL classes at Church of the Servant. She helped me find a recording of the song, gave me the meaning of each word of the original text, and even guided me through the Croatian pronunciation phonetically. I created a singing translation in English and arranged it for piano.

This arrangement makes a beautiful Korean setting of Psalm 121 available to English-speaking congregations.
Sanna, Sannanina – flute/piccolo descant$5.00 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.
