Before Your Manger, Here I Stand / Ich steh an deiner Krippen hier$25.00 Add to cart
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.
Blessed Be!$25.00 – $35.00 Select options[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/blessed_be.mp3"][/audio]
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’!
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.
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.
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.
One Generation Will Call to the Next$0.00 Select options[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/tsang-one_generation.mp3"][/audio]
Looking for a song to celebrate and encourage intergenerational worship? This setting of Psalm 145:1-7 was one of the winning songs of the CRC sesquicentennial hymn contest. Since then it has been included in three hymnals, recorded on a CD, sung at weddings, and used as a theme song for church dedications and education programs. One young person said this: I love this song. It has given me greater understanding of what a healthy church and Godly community looks like and has inspired me to be open to learning from the “last” generation.[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/one_generation-gen2gen.mp3"][/audio]

Psalm 104: Oh, Rejoice in All Your Works$0.00 – $35.00 Select options
Wendell Kimbrough’s setting of Psalm 104 won the COS New Psalm Contest in 2014. Since then, I’ve arranged this song for strings, brass, and choir. These arrangements bring out a whole new majestic side to the song.
