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!
Holy, Holy, You Are Holy/Uri Uwer’Uwer’Uwera$0.00 Add to cart[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.

How Can I Keep from Singing?$0.00 – $5.00 Select options[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/how_can_i_keep.mp3"][/audio]
The title phrase gives the impression of a wide-eyed universalist anthem of feel-good hope. But a deeper look shows a hymn that recognizes both the struggles of life and the hope of faith in Christ. This Just Add People arrangement brings out the lament of the verses with a minor harmonization, switching to a major key when the refrain proclaims confidently: No storm can shake my inmost calm.

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.

This triumphant hymn of commitment sounds wonderful on organ or piano, but worship team? Not so much. This leadsheet and rough demo provide an alternative approach for leading the hymn in a band context.

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.
