Every Valley$25.00 – $35.00 Select options[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/every_valley.mp3"][/audio]
This tender jazz/pop ballad brings fresh, new insight into the timeless words of the prophet Isaiah (Isaiah 40:1-5). It can be an effective companion to “Blessed Be!” because of its similar instrumentation (a cappella, choir and piano, or full band), but it could also compliment Handel’s “Comfort Ye My People” and “Ev’ry Valley Shall Be Exalted” from Messiah because of their shared text.
Feed Us, Lord$0.00 – $25.00 Select options[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/feed_us_lord-cos_choir.mp3"][/audio]
This simple, reflective communion song focuses on the way Jesus feeds our hearts at the table. The congregational version of the song includes a piano part and has the option of three keys with modulations: C, D and F. Though your congregation will pick up the tune in no time, you may want to consider introducing it with the arrangement for SATB Choir and Piano.
PowerPoint slides for congregational singing are available from Digital Songs & Hymns.
From the Dust You Shall Raise Us Up$0.00 – $25.00 Select options
I had an unfortunate opportunity to reflect on mortality when my friend Christina Mandang was hit by a car. Her sudden and senseless death at the age of 38 reminded me once again how fleeting our lives are. It is truly ashes to ashes and dust to dust, with precious little time in between. The good news is that the God who breathed life into dust to create Adam and who resurrected Jesus from the grave is the same God who has promised to raise us from death to eternal life.

This aria is taken from a cantata based on Psalm 113 and premiered at the 100 year anniversary of the Hermsdorfer Kirche in the former East Germany. “From there, where the sun rises, to the place where it sets — everywhere — the Lord of lords is praised!”

Both the shepherds’ quiet homage to the newborn king and the angels’ jubilant “Gloria in excelsis Deo!” are brought together musically in this dramatic new text. The choir and pianist will be challenged by the piece, and excited by the results of their work.

God Moves in a Mysterious Way$5.00 – $25.00 Select options[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/god_moves.mp3"][/audio]
This text by William Cowper is a profound statement on faith in God’s providence: “You fearful saints fresh courage take, the clouds you so much dread are filled with mercy and shall break with blessings on your head.” This anthem builds throughout, creating a powerful musical expression of trust.
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!
In a Still, Small Voice$0.00 – $25.00 Select options[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/still_small_voice.mp3"][/audio]
This quiet ballad uses I Kings 19:11-13 and events from Jesus’ ministry to reflect on hearing the still, small voice of the Lord in our world today. The song can be effectively led by a praise team or sung as an anthem by choir.
Jesus Lover of My SoulRead more
Charles Wesley’s hymn “Jesus, Lover of My Soul” is a timeless text that has been forever in search of a timeless tune. This choral setting brings out the pathos of the text, an urgent prayer in time of need. The anthem is scored for SATB Choir and Piano and can be purchased from GIA Music.
I love this hymn so much that I included it in an episode of the Greg Scheer Music Podcast as well as a Lent hymn series that explored a different musical setting of “Jesus, Lover of My Soul” every week.
Jesus, Be Enough$0.00 – $25.00 Select options[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/jesus_be_enough-choir.mp3"][/audio]
Most Christmas songs are all joy and confidence: Shepherds overwhelmed by angelic songs; Wisemen led by navigational stars. But if your life is at all like mine, those moments are rare. Instead, life is often accompanied by a soundtrack of doubt, missteps, and loss. “Jesus, Be Enough” asks the question: Is Jesus a sufficient gift even when Christmas miracles don’t occur? Will we trust God even when our prayers seem to go unanswered? It is a Christmas carol for the rest of us. [Above is a demo of the choral anthem and below is a version with guitar and cello.][audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/jesus_be_enough.mp3"][/audio]
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.
