Score includes piano accompaniment.
Accompaniment tracks available.
Commissioned choral work in honor of the 350th anniversary celebration of the North Parish Church of North Andover, MA. Lyrics by the late Rev. David Blanchard. "We reaffirm the ancient vow of those who've gone before...to serve the living God."
Loving and irreverent tribute to honor Rev. David Blanchard's
32 year ministry. For retirements of all kinds...just tweak the lyrics.
Unison or Two-Part choir,
This Christmas carol medley features new melodic treatment for unison choir...with an optional harmony line...accompanied by piano and one handbell (F6). A wonderful selection for
Christmas Eve...especially when most of the choir is out of town.
Introit / Call to Worship
Short and sweet...let the choir open the service and
lead the congregation into the spirit of worship.
Gospel-inspired arrangement of Haydn's hymn tune, "Austria."
Feel free to add instrumentation for a gospel feel.
An upbeat, gospel-inspired Christmas arrangement. The accompaniment seems to work better when supplemented by a shaker or tambourine. A small band might enhance the overall experience. Instrumentation is left up to your imagination.
utilizes 5/4...for Contemporary Worship services
This arrangement of the traditional Doxology was created to blend the familiar song with a newer version a Contemporary Worship service might be able to use...with a Worship Band. The word "Him" was intentionally replaced throughout with the more gender neutral "God." It can easily be changed back, if desired.
