    Written to accompany Neal Plantinga’s sermon on Cain and Abel (Genesis 4:1-6) at the 2010 Calvin Worship Symposium and then revamped as a choral anthem for the first Lessons & Carols reading (Genesis 3:8-15), “A Mark of Grace” tells the whole human story–creation, fall and redemption–in the form of a lyrical ballad. You could say it’s a meditative musical meta-narrative.

    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.

    If your choir sings Mozart’s “Ave Verum,” this setting of the same text will provide some variety to your communion services. About the same difficulty level as the Mozart, it features a harp-like piano part, rich choral texture, and two short solos.

    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.

    The words of Zechariah take on a gospel flavor in this new setting of Luke 1:67-79. Performances can be scaled from an a cappella rendition to a full blown band version which includes rollicking piano, hip hop drum set, sizzling horns (trumpet, alto sax and trombone), and funky bass. For those of you who are more adventurous, it even includes the optional “Blessed Be Rap.” A sure way to get your Advent or Christmas concert smokin’!

    Christmas can become saccharine when it’s populated only with sweet baby Jesuses, choruses of angels, and mild Marys. Just as the Magis’ myrrh foreshadowed Jesus’ burial, “Ah, Holy Jesus” reminds us of the full meaning of the incarnation. This piece weaves “Lo, How a Rose” and “Ah, Holy Jesus” together in musical counterpoint that thickens both their differences and underlying unity. After focusing on these two sides of Christ, our only response can be praise; the piece ends with a rousing rendition of “All My Heart Again Rejoices.”

    Full orchestration for choirs, piano, organ, and brass. Price allows you to make as many copies as you need for your ensemble.

    Reginald Heber’s classic communion text comes alive in this stirring musical setting. The simple soprano melody (optional solo) that begins the piece blossoms into a rich choral texture which is supported by the flowing piano accompaniment.

    Tammy Moody wrote a lovely text about trusting God to be a good father. I like how Tammy approaches the image of God as Father, which is quite out of fashion in some circles. She acknowledges the fear and doubt many of us have in believing we’re children, accepted and loved by a good Heavenly Father.

    This hymn speaks of God’s care for his people. There is a tenderness in this text and tune, and this choral arrangement echoes that with a gentle piano line and a capella sections. Optionally, the congregation may join for the unison fourth verse.

    One of the wonderful things about the Christian faith is that Jesus doesn’t require us to “have it all together” before we come to him. Before we even knew we needed him, he was calling us. This short, meditative song, reminds those of us who are tired and weighed down are especially welcome. Jesus is calling us to himself. Both versions include four-part voice/accompaniment.

    This rendition of Psalm 36:5-9 is an expansive folk-rock song of praise to the Creator whose love surpasses the grandeur of all creation. There are two versions of the song. First, it is available as a free leadsheet for congregation singing. Next, it is arranged for choir, piano, and congregation, with chord symbols so it can be accompanied by guitar and bass to get that “folk choir” kind of sound. It is a simple arrangement that will only take one rehearsal to learn, but it is by no means simplistic. The choral arrangement is published by GIA. (You can purchase the song at GIA or view a sample online.) If your church follows the lectionary, this scripture passage comes up on the second week of Epiphany in year C, and in Holy Week every year.
