Sanna, Sannanina – flute/piccolo descant$5.00 Add to cart
“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.

Speak Sabbath O’er My Soul$5.00 Add to cart[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/moody-speak_sabbath.mp3"][/audio]
With echoes of Sibelius’ “Be Still My Soul,” “Speak Sabbath O’er My Soul” positions Sabbath as something life-giving that God does for us rather than a teeth-gritting discipline we do for God.

The Lord’s Prayer$25.00 Add to cart
Even with just two vocal lines, there is enough musically and emotionally in this setting of Matthew 6:9-13 to stimulate the best church choir, broaden the treble chorus’ repertoire, or challenge the childrens’ choir. It also makes a nice duet.

Wen Ti (聞笛)/Lift your eyes unto the hills$25.00 Add to cart
Wen Ti (The Flute Plays) was written in the 9th century. It describes beautiful bamboo flute music coming from a nearby home; the poet wonders who is playing the lovely tune. The flowing pentatonic melody is used here with new words for various sections of a worship service: call to worship, assurance of pardon, doxology, and benediction.
This arrangement was commissioned for a service at the 2018 Calvin Worship Symposium. You can hear it at the following times in the video:
11:47 Call to Worship: “Lift Your Eyes unto the Hills” (based on Psalm 121 and 124)
21:44 Assurance of Pardon: “God Is Gracious to Forgive” (evoking Colossians 1:12-15)
1:22:56 Doxology “To the One Who’s Shown Us Love” (from Revelation 1:4-6)
Anthem for SATB choir and piano with optional C instrument; includes full score and C instrument part.
أبانا الذي في السماء ليتقدس اسمك/Abana in HeavenRead more
“Abana” is sung by Christians throughout the Arabic-speaking world. This haunting, yet vigorous melody beautifully captures the words of the Lord’s Prayer.
My arrangemnt that appears in hymnals makes heavy use of a drone in a hymn texture. That’s lovely, but not like the recordings I’ve heard of the song from Egypt. This SATB and piano arrangement is more along those lines: almost Klezmer-like use of the harmonic scale, a rhythmic accompaniment with lots of rubato, and vocal harmonies that tend to move in thirds.
This anthem is scored for SATB and piano and can be purchased from GIA Music.
