A Mark of Grace$0.00 – $35.00 Select options[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/coslc-mark_of_grace.mp3"][/audio]
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.
Adoração/All of My Heart$0.00 – $15.00 Select options
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.
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.
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.
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]
