    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.

    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.

    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!

    [audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/26-Holy-Holy-You-Are-Holy-Rwanda.mp3"][/audio]

    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.

    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.

    Piano accompaniment for congregational singing.

    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.

  • Psalm 121: Lift Your Eyes Up to the Mountains!

    This arrangement makes a beautiful Korean setting of Psalm 121 available to English-speaking congregations.

    Rubem Amorese and Toninho Zemuner write beautiful congregational songs in their native Portuguese. Their song on Psalm 125, “Proteçao,” is a beautiful testament to the protection that surrounds God’s people.

    https://musicblog.gregscheer.com/babylonian_rivers.mp3

    By the Babylonian Rivers” is one of my favorite songs from Global Songs for Worship and one of my favorite Psalm settings in general. I decided that the line “Lord God, hear your lonely band” fairly demanded an instrumental interlude, so I wrote one.

    Download includes piano accompaniment, interlude, SATB harmony, and second verse harmonization.

    https://musicblog.gregscheer.com/psalm_47-clap_your_hands-COS.mp3

    This Yoruban folk song is published as “Psalm 47: Clap Your Hands” in both Global Songs for Worship and Psalms for All Seasons. It is surprisingly simple to sing, which isn’t always the case with African songs and arrangements.

    It is also available as an anthem for cantor, choir, flute and percussion published by GIA.

    This hymn is a free download. If you sing this song in your church,  please report its use to CCLI or OneLicense.

    https://musicblog.gregscheer.com/sanna_sannanina-flute.mp3

    “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.
