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.
Go Down, Moses$25.00 Add to cart[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/go_down_moses.mp3"][/audio]
If your church has a jazz band, you’ve got to try this swinging spiritual. The chart is scored for 2 trumpets, alto sax, tenor sax, trombone, flute (optional), and rhythm section. It’s easy enough for high school level players but will make them sound like seasoned pros.
Lo, How a Rose$25.00 – $35.00 Select options
One of the most lovely songs of the Advent/Christmas season is turned into a tender jazz ballad. An oft omitted verse is included (“O Flow’r whose fragrance tender…”) and a short soprano solo provides extra vocal texture. This flexible choral anthem includes chord symbols for jazz combo, but it can also be sung a cappella, as in the recording above by the Heinz Chapel Choir of the University of Pittsburgh. The orchestral accompaniment is also flexible, allowing full orchestra or just the strings to support the sound of the choir and piano.[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/lo_how_a_rose.mp3"][/audio]
