    “O Sacred Head, Now Wounded” is the quintessential Passion hymn. These descants can be played by a variety of treble or bass clef instruments, together or separately, and are also flexible in how they are used within the song. For example, I have used the descants as an extended introduction and brought them back on the final verse of singing. Email me for other transpositions that would be useful in your church.

    This hymn makes a great transition between the seasons of Christmas and Epiphany, following Jesus from his birth to his days on earth. This arrangement creates a sense of wonder with a sparkling intro/outro and fresh harmonies. It could also be used with the texts “I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say” and “We Sing the Mighty Power of God.” The string quartet arrangement available below can also be used for congregational singing and adds lyrical interludes between each verse.

    PUER NOBIS is one of the great hymn tunes of the Church and is matched with many texts, including “O Splendor of God’s Glory Bright” and “On Jordan’s Banks the Baptist’s Cry.” I tried to bring out its folk song flavor in a way that often gets lost in the four-part hymnal arrangement. (Note: the demo above uses the text “On Jordan’s Banks.”)

    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.

    PUER NOBIS is one of the great hymn tunes of the Church and is matched with many texts, including “On Jordan’s Banks the Baptist’s Cry” and “O Splendor of God’s Glory Bright.” (This arrangement is available with either text.) I tried to bring out its folk song flavor with a piano accompaniment that is energetic. I feel like this arrangement brings out the sprightly nature of this tune in a way that often gets lost in the four-part hymnal.

    Piano accompaniment for congregational singing, with C instrument descant. Purchase price allows you to make as many copies as you need for your ensemble.

    This beloved Christmas carol arrangement was commissioned by violinist Sarah York. She needed a contemplative prelude for a Christmas service. In this arrangement, the familiar carol tune is passed back and forth between piano and violin or cello, creating mesmerizing layers of echoed melody.
